43Things.com is shutting down! I don’t think I used the site much, but I decided to export my content anyway. It turns out that I’m not terribly exciting or keen on goal-setting… I guess. Remember how I never formally ‘finished’ my 101 goals list? Someday I’ll do a little write up about it. Maybe.
Anyway, it’s an interesting reflection to see what I was up to seven years ago (because I’m sure I logged in twice and then forgot about the site)…
I’ve done 31 things
- Learn to knit.
- Make firefox my default browser. (It still is, but now I feel like I oughta convert to Chrome.)
- Try out 43 things.
- Go to college.
- Graduate from high school.
- Try pocky.
- Meet someone from another country.
- Set up a wireless network in my house.

And, even more interesting are the items I was seeking to complete seven years ago!
I’m doing 13 things
