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.

AH. So I bulit up an allergy to acrylic, which apparently happens, but is not common. Soooo I’m just sticking fake plastic ones on with nail glue.

They’re actually working just as well…. the thing is, if I bit the acrylics a little, they’d break, but if I bite these, the whole thing falls off which is annoying so I havent been doing it. PLUS I’m saving money. A pack with glue costs $20 and can last me two weeks or more… Acrylics were costing me $40 for about 1.5 weeks plus money to bus there.

Wow, long entry :P

been a couple of months

it’s been a couple of months with acrylics and when one falls off i can see how long my actual nails are. some are past the end of my finger! :O


I got acrylics almost 4 weeks ago so it’s been impossible to bite my nails :D I’ve been biting since I’ve had teeth and my nails have never gotten past like 1cm so this definitely works!!


Have only bitten my right pointer nail (frist day back at uni) and my left thumb nail (at work tonight) other than that, no biting in 6 days


I bought $50 worth of stuff to stop me biting my nails. Can’t remember if I added an entry about that or not but anyway I haven’t bitten ANY of them in 4 days!!!

That’s the best I’ve done in years.


No sooner had I decided I could finally do this that I wrecked it. I chose my protected nail and painted it a pink colour so I’d remember… I was doing okay then I went to see my boyfriend and chewed it half off.


Okay I’ve started a fresh on this AGAIN. Been biting for about 17 years now…

I’ve put aside a protected finger. My right pinky so if I need to bite I’ll choose another.. I’m slowly gonna do this :)
