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.

black clothing

I <3 Black clothing and I think black <3's me back

nails done

Went to a nail parlour and got a manicure with black polish- it looks really good. Feeling great!


After discovering that I was wearing the wrong bra si ze I bought lots of lingerie- one giant leap in my life. I’m almost to scared to wear them but I’m getting rid of all my other underwear.

Being different is the new sexy

I have realised that people that I think are sexy are in actual fact quite different. Connie Chiu, Shaun Ross and Diandra Forrest are all albino and gorgeous… Crystal Renn is considered a plus size model but is goregous so maybe I could take my difference and make it sexy… mmm


So I wore lipstick out last week. It was my mom’s old lipstick and my friends told me it looked good on me so I have added lipstick to my new kit for sexiness. I’ve lost two kg’s and I guess I’m wearing vintage clothing because I’m wearing a lot of my mom’s old clothing BOOYAH! Kicked down a goal without realizing it (wear vintage clothing). Should try to wear vintage, lipstick, nail polish all at the same time- maybe I’ll feel and be sexy… excuse me while I check off my wear vintage goal. YAY!

hair and nail

I got my hair did and my nails painted. Even bought a manicure set. I’VE LOST 5 kg’s too. Ok that’s because I was sick but I’m planning on keeping it off!


I’ve started dancing again and although tap dancing is not exactly sexy contemporary isn’t either but I think the prospect of losing weight makes me feel good.
