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.

I havent posted in a LONG time!

Yeah so I haven’t posted in forever. On about February 17, I got my hair cut into an even bob. It was above my ear lobes. It had a little bit of layers. NOT anymore! It is now below my jaw, its all one length (except bangs of course). And VERY thick. I predict that by the end of summer it will be pretty 4 and a half inches longer. I’m excited that it has grown so much. :3 all I really do is leave it alone. I massage it and take hair skin and nails vitamins. I’m gonna grow it to my thigh. Hopefully.

Getting a cut

I have a mullet right now that I hate. Its collar bone length. I’m just gonna bite the mullet and get it cut off. I’m going to cut it into an even pageboy bob. Just below my jaw. It will look bad and I will go through some suffering but its worth it. I will post pictures right after it gets cut.


My friend bought me a jar of BB Super Gro. I have used it once so far. Makes the hair silky soft. Hopefully it will make my hair grow faster. My hair has grown a little. Its just past collar bone when I stretch the curls.

Ive been ingnoring it a while.

But, it has grown tremendously. It sits slightly longer than my shoulders(a little over three fists measuring from the scalp). This is definitely progress. When I got it cut in september, it was like two inches under my ears :D I still have a long way to go until even BSL. Don’t forget, long term goal is thigh length for me ;D

My very own measuring method.

Alright so I made up a measuring method that’s easy for me to understand. Its measured in fists. Basically its how many times you can put your fist on the length of your hair. I think its easy to understand.just how many fists of length you have. Right now I’ve got a little more than one fist. Which is shoulder length.
I want eight fists. Which is thigh length. I have reasonably healthy, thick hair, so it should grow that long.


Sorry for posting so much! But I just realized something. I’m about a fourth Indian(not native american). Indians are pretty much known for hair that is very long. They’re growth phase is about 5-9 years long. Same with caucasians. Guess what, I’m caucasian! I’m so excited. This is giving me new ambition.


I’m geting so tired growing my hair! I wish I just had long pretty hair. My goal keeps getting longer. First it was tailbone, then classic, then thigh, and now its knee length. This is making me angry. Its so short! Its shoulder length. GROW HAIR! Ugh I feel hideous. Its going to take at LEAST 3 years to hit tailbone length. Sorry for the rant. I just need to vent.I want long hair. >:(


To Minniee itsi, it seems as though your hair is shoulder length already. But I reccomd hair skin and nails vitamins.

To orbitisamazing, well the vitamins I use are Natures Bounty Hair Skin and Nails. I will soon start using prenatal vitamins for hair growth. I also reccomend mane n tail shampoos. I think my hair was about 2 inches below my ears in september. Its grown to my shoulders now. I want it alll the way to my thighs. But I don’t know if it’ll grow that long. But anyway, sorry I couldn’t reply in a comment. I’m using a phone with this and it won’t let me put a comment! Ahh well.

Just got a cut

Got a trim about 30 minutes ago. They thinned it out since I have THICK hair. I still want to grow it at least waist length. If I can I want it thigh or knee length. Right now its shoulder length. Its grown three inches in three months. Read my previous entry to see how I did it. In a year it should be to my bellybutton.


Okay so before, my hair was about three inches above shoulder length. I’ve been growing it since mid September.Its now shoulder length! Its grown three whole inches in three months. I use Mane N Tail, Garnier Frutis shine serum, Pantene beautiful Lengths, And hair skin and nails vitamins. I don’t straighten, dye or do anything damaging to my hair. I trim split ends every two months. I massage my hair with a prong brush for a few minutes everyday. Once a week when I get out of the shower, I put a tiny bit of facial lotion on the ends of my hair to prevent split ends. I wash my hair every other day. My hair was VERY short. It has grown three inches. Follow my advice
