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.

Kinda sorta, but not really.

So, a couple of months ago I went to Sephora and bough $200 worth of makeup. Yeah, I know. So, I’ve been wearing it to raves for practice. I don’t wanna wear it to school until next year. Anywho, as for clothes I bought those pointy shoes. I’ve only worn them once, but that’s because I don’t know what else to wear with them. There’s alot more I’d like to do with being girly. I’m definately not all the way there yet, but hopefully I’ll be there soon. :)

Much better.

I’m totally digging the girliness that I didn’t know I had. I’m loving it. I can be me and be girly. My batbling shirt..everybody loves it. lol It’s cute..and has a touch of girliness. I’m just happy I’m me. I’m not wearing makeup that much anymore. I’m only wearing it if it’s a very special occassion, but I have people on myspace always telling me I look nice, so I guess that’s a good thing. I hope lol
I’m happy, but not satisfied yet. I want to test myself in a skirt this spring. We shall see…

Working on the feminine thing...

I’ve never worn makeup without feeling like a clown. I recently started putting makeup on, and I don’t feel so weird. I can actually put it on well. Ah…it feels good to be a girly girl for once.


I’m shocked at what I’ve done in just the past two days. I’ve recently recieved money. I spent almost half of it on clothes.
I even went to the MAC counter at Macy’s and had makeup matched. I put some on today, and walked out of the house with enough confidence, even though I felt a little weird about it. I bought those “boots with the fur” lol I’ve never really gone shopping for so many things for myself. I even bought a Juicy Couture shirt at Nordstroms Rack. Still looking good at half frice lol
Now, I need to put the clothes ON! lol
Once I have embraced my full femininity I’ll let you know.

I want to do this

But I’m not sure where to start. I at least want to dress better. I dress in baggy jeans and message T-shirts. I only put on lipgloss and while I do put lotion and body spray on in the morning that’s about as feminine as I get. I want to be the woman I was made to be.
