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.

Getting there!



$100 Reward

My grandfather said he’d pay me $100 on October 1, 2012 if I didn’t cut my hair anymore from now until then. If I do, I have to pay HIM $100. I really just needed some motivation to let my hair grow out. I have a difficult time getting past that awkward phase of it touching my neck and looking like a mop on top of my head. I really like my hair short… But I miss it being long, too. :/ Blah… I’ll probably chop it all off once it grows out again, but… Oh well! :)

August 26, 2011

My hair is chin length in the front, around my face, and I think the back is very close to catching up. I think I’m gonna wait another month before I get a trim. I also need to get a chem treatment for the damage I did to it when I hilighted the hell out of it. So… My ultimate goal is for it to be down to my elbows when my arms are hanging by my sides. Got a ways to go, yea? lol


I want to:
