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.

the_illusionist is creating illusions, not delusions

grow wings (read all 175 entries…)
I havn'e been on in forever. With back to school and stuff, I hardly had time! but I'm still saying a spell on the blue moon

my birthday is in four days. I can’t wait, because I’m having a Troll 2 themed party! (The Best Worst movie EVER!)

My back hurts mildly, but it mainly tingles whenever I sit still. Since I found that feather, I want my wings more than ever! I’ve been meaning to ask this. How do you make a wand? If any of you know, that would be awesome!

Oh! and I wanna say one last thing before I go… i have this little brown medicine pouch (not really spiritual or a family heirloom or anything. I bought it at a gift shop) and I wore it to my first day in high school today. With my orange white and black feather in it. As a good luck charm of sorts.

So, as the blue moon aproaches, I would love to know. Does anyone need a spell? I’m willing to make a few. But only tonight. Tomorrow I’ll have homework and such. I’m so bad in math, it’ll take all night. sighs Please make sure that if you want one, you provide all the info. What color, what aproximite wing span, and anything else you find important. I’ll make you a blue moon spell, that calls upon the power of the blue moon. Unless you want just aregular spell of course. :D Thanks!

this is one I made, and I translated it to latin with google translate:

Nocte luna claro
Obsecro primum facere suus
Da mihi obsecro viscera mea alas albus
Rubro et nigro praeclarum spectaculum
Pertineant ad me
Sicut videbis
EGO postulo volare
In caelo
Ego ero naturalis flier
Possum ergo ire superior
Cum pulmones fecit respirare tenues auras
Et assumam magna cura
Ut custodiant eos de nocet via
Quibus alis volare nocte ac die
Proinde hoc celare potero
Hoc, vera sit oportet
Sic nemo videbit
Hoc volo ut fiat

this is it in English:
On the night of the blue moon
I call upon it’s power to act soon
Please give me my inner wings of white
And red and black, what a beautiful sight
They belong to me
As you will see
I need to fly
Up in the sky
I will be a natural flier
So I can go higher
With lungs made to breath thin air
And I will take great care
To keep them out of harms way
These wings to fly, night and day
They must be able to hide from view
This must be true
So no one will see
This is my will, so mote it be


MusicalHarmony Music is my life

when you do poetry in school, do you get good grades for what you write. thats amazing!

the_illusionist is creating illusions, not delusions

:D Thanks!

I just put the words that felt right together. And what do you know? It rhymes! :D And I do get good grades for poetry. I once wrote a poem from the book Schooled. I actually thought it was good. :P

Spindrift ~fallow your dreams

I can read in spanish because I’m spanish YAY! xD Does it matter which one we say it in?

NekoWerewolf You can hurt me. But if you hurt me enough, I WILL find you.

Latin is more powerful. Seriously…idk why though.

Ok. Here you go:

On the night of the blue moon
I call upon it’s power to please act soon
To give my inner wings to me
They will be beautiful to see
Smokey grey with black edges
I have wanted these wings for ages
The wingspan is 22 feet wide
And they must be able to fold up and hide
So one one will see
This is my will so mote it be

(Say with a feather, if possible. Make sure to say it on the blue moon!)

Here it is in Latin if you want to use this:
Nocte luna claro
Ego voco super eam potestatem placere actus mox
Dare viscera mea alas suas ad me
Erunt pulchra specie
Smokey cinereo nigris marginibus
Haec volui pinnas sæculis
In wingspan est XXII lata pedes
Complicare et abscondere possint et
Ita unum nemo videbit
Hoc sic fiat

NekoWerewolf You can hurt me. But if you hurt me enough, I WILL find you.

22 FEET? THAT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO HIDE!!!! Mine are going to be fourteen feet, and I’m 90-100 pounds (ik, kind of skinny for a thirteen year old xD)

Sum Will get her wings!
