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.

hair- as of now.

i can not describe the extreeme hatred i have for my hair. while i do my best to take good care of it, it does not do its best to take care of me. kinky, curly, frizzy, dramatic, a big pain. it takes hours for me to do anything nice to it, so i always end up just pulling it back into a messy bun kind of thing. I saw an entry about someone who was surprised at how long thier hair had gotten. i straightened my hair new years eve and everyone was surprised at how long it was, even i was! i have been growing it out for almost 4 years now since high school when i cut it off close to 4 or 5 inches to get rid of the bleached areas on the tips. at that time it was barely above my shoulders, and now its just about to my nipples when curly and probably below my breast line and to my mid back when straightened. I just hope to one day find a style that i love my hair..a color that i truly appreciate and more importantly, a mind set that when i look in the mirror i can say i look really great!
