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.

- The Robots.

Grow out my hair dye
I can't wait for my hair to grow longer

After having to cut my midback blonde hair to an Aline due to damage from a hairdresser I am still having nightmares. I recently went to another salon and the girl there turned my hair orange and fried. Went to another salon a weel later for a conditioning treatment and the hairdresser there was suppose to just trim my hair…well, he cut it to my ears. I have ugly short orange hair. I look like a boy. I feel UGLY and can’t even stand to go out in public. I am leaving for London at the end of December and I am not touching it till close to my departure. I hope to grow some length and get the color fixed and then let it continue to grow out. I will be happy if I can at least get it to my collar bone. I was almost afraid it wasn’t going to grow at all because of the damage but it has been almost 2 weeks and I can finally see some new root regrowth. Thank goodness. I am taking a hair, skin and nail vitamin right now.

I reckon your “hide under a rock” haircut is so cute, and you can really pull it off!
