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.

get my septum pierced
the septum.

Right, so I decided finally to get my septum pierced. I went to a tattoo parlour and he told me to not get my hopes up as my nose has something that might mean it cannot get pierced. Luckily, after the second attempt, he managed to pierce it through the “sweet spot” (by this time my eyes were watering like crazy). I don’t regret getting it done and if you’re thinking about getting it done, GET IT! I’m also 16 so I was legal to get it peirced and although my family seem to dislike the “metal bogies” my friends and I love it.

It’s also easy to hide as you can flip it inside your nose which is personally a bonus as it means I will still have a job!


Celestial_Fox School soon.

Super exciting!

I can’t wait to get mine done, too! :) I love that it can be hidden.

Caroline Ouston has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
