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.

How to brush my hair 100 times before I go to bed every night for a week


☠ dustball jin ☠ remember when we used to shine

Can’t believe I’m a dude giving that advice to a girl but putting the right products helps a great deal when it comes to tangled hair (I break lots of hair from excessive brushing). However if I apply conditioner or a mask, I hardly have to brush it all afterwards. Do I sound vain right now ?

lol :)

Nope, if you have hair you should look after it!

(You never know it may be gone someday!!!!)

Whenever I buy new shampoo and conditioner I buy two conditioners because I use a lot of it.

I have had my hair every colour there is and I have bleached it so many times I have to use lots of product so it doesn’t get in really bad condition.

It has just been pure laziness because i’m not working at the moment so I don’t leave the house as much as I would usually.

I too buy a lot more conditioner than shampoo (my hair is very dry so I hardly need to shampoo it at all, however I need like half a bottle of conditioner every time).

Must be fun trying every colour ! I used to want blue hair but it would look silly on me ‘cause it’s very thick and curly already. I did relax it when I was 17-18 but it destroyed it so I wasn’t going to add bleaching + a colour over that ! It did give me the opportunity to experience what non-aerodynamic hair feels like for a little year :)

Sometimes I miss the shaved head look, it’s less work (but I get self-conscious without hair to hide behind).
