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.

Wear your mom's lingerie
My Mom Caught Me Wearing Her Lingerie!

I am a male. One day I came home from high school, my mom usually got home 90 minutes later after picking up my sister at the bus stop.
I went to my room and undressed. I walked into my mom’s bedroom. I opened her dresser and retrieved a white lacy bra, and matching panties. I put them on. I grabbed a pair of my mom’s tan colored pantyhose. I slid them onto my legs. They felt heavenly. I then got a pair of my mom’s high heeled sandals. I put them on. I put on my mom’s makeup including lipstick, eyeshadow, eyeliner, blusher. I put on one of Mom’s pearl necklaces and bracelets. I admired myself in the mirror. I liked what I saw.
I decide to walk to the basement to see how my high heels clicked on the cement floor. I walked around. I went to the phone in the hallway by the outside door. I walked back and forth pretending I was on the phone. I apparently lost track of time. I was still holding the phone pretending to talk as I walked out of the hallway area around the corner into the laundry room. As I did this I walked smack into my mom who was only 4 feet away coming toward me.
She was startled as was I. Then she was shocked at seeing me wearing her bra, panties, pantyhose, high heels, and makeup. She said “Ted, what the heck are you up to?”. Needless to say I had lots of explaining to do. She went upstairs. I waited 10 minutes then I went up. Mom said “Ted come here and explain what you were doing wearing my clothes, NOW”. I told her I was going to talk to her after I changed. She said “No, you wanted to be dressed like that earlier, you can stay dressed like that while you sit here and talk to me.” I had to sit there wearing my mom’s clothes while I answered all here hundreds of questions, what, why, how long, how often, etc.
To add to the embarassment, shortly after we began talking, my sister walked into the livingroom to see what all the fuss was about. Mom told her all about it, then told sis to sit down and listen while I talked to my mom all about it.
What could I say, the obvious already was known. I am a crossdresser. After that my family knew it too!


I Am Glad This Happened

After the incident I found I was very relieved. I did not have to worry as much about “what if I get caught”. I am sure this helped me eventually decide if everyone knew my secret it would be ok.


I want to:
