Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

Well, that's OodOut with the red, in with this hue.

...Wow. I’m ashamed at myself for that one.

Anyway, half bath went from the red of the previous entry to this color. Ceiling will be (re-)painted white. Eventually, the toilet will be replaced with a white one, the existing cabinet/sink removed, this vanity and this mirror installed. 1 month ago


Well, that's OodLiving in an off-white world.

When I moved into my house (almost a year ago, wow), nearly everything was painted the same color. I mean everything. Walls, ceiling, trim, even some cabinets, tile and counter tops, too. I’ve been living in a mostly off-white world for the past year, and I’m slowly losing my mind. (That may or may not have anything to do with the color of the walls.) You know, forgetting the taste of bread, the sound of trees, the softness of the wind, that kind of thing. The few rooms that weren’t off white had this really hideous red/maroon color.

On top of really awful color choices, the paint job itself leaves a lot to be desired. They painted over electrical outlets, over pipe coverings, left seemingly thousands of bumps, nicks and globs of paint all over the walls. I mean, this is how they painted behind the toilet with that red color. I feel this is a pretty good visual representation of the paint job of the entire house; in a word, shitty.

I’ve already started tackling a few rooms, but haven’t quite finished any of them.

Started:
  • Kitchen (Most of the wall is done. Didn’t paint around the cabinets yet since I want to put in a back splash and paint the cabinets. Pantry, cabinets and ceiling still need to be painted.);
  • Half bathroom (The red is gone, but the wall may need a second coat. Ceiling and door need to be painted.);
  • Master Bedroom (Wall is finished. Ceiling, trim and doors need to be painted).
Haven’t touched yet:
  • Master Bathroom (Everything in this room is off-white; it’s awful.)
  • Hallway/Stairwell
  • Guest Bedroom
  • Office
  • Finished part of basement 1 month ago

Well, that's Ood 1 month ago
