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.

Glowing flamingo.

Turns out my pink hair colour also glows underneath UV light :). I tried it before with ‘Electric Banana’ and that one was really bright glowy. Today at school I felt the urge to investigate if ‘Pretty Flamingo’ did the same. Manic Panics website claimed it would, but it wasn’t written on the jar, as it was with ‘Electric Banana’.

Turns out it does glow, but not as bright as yellow did. Maybe it is because it washed out for a great bit already :(. It is a fast fading colour :(. On the other hand pink may be a more difficult ‘glow’ colour (most fluorescent things are yellow/green). Anyway it was fun again :). No photo this time :(.

Pink again!

I’m pink again :D. After a long struggle with myself I finally decided to go pink again (instead of turquoise). Although I ♥ the colour I have to get used to it again. It was a tough dye, because you really had to put it very thick on every strand of hair. I missed a few spots so to speak, so some parts of my hair are orange or yellowish. I don’t really mind though, overall it is a nice pink. The pic doesn’t really do it justice, but I felt there was a nice dreamy air about it, so here it is!


I have had pink hair for a couple of months now and it is so worth it! I’m still looking for the best dye though, going for special effects cupcake pink next.
