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.

dye my hair an unnatural color
Wooo, pink

I’ve had my hair enough odd colors to form a veritable rainbow, but it’s been about two years since that period. Sooo over February vacay I ran to Sally Beauty, picked up a color remover, a bleach kit, and a couple of jars of Manic Panic, and let the torture commence. As my hair is dyed black, the ends of what I bleached wound up this sort of horrid orange color, as was to be expected, and the roots were the blonde I had hoped for- didn’t apply heat, stupid mistake. :|

Anyway, I used Manic Panic’s Hot Hot Pink over the bleached bits, and the result is nothing short of delicious. The roots, as I said, were better bleached so they’re quite bright- but this is what you get when you put that particular dye over ginger hair (check the pic)

Get my nose pierced.
Hoo boy :]

So um. I’m gonna do this on Saturday, plus two more holes in each earlobe. It’s gonna be sweet :]

I’ve been wanting to get a facial piercing for so long now, so when I found out I’m getting one done for my birthday, I was ecstatic, haha. But I’ve been a lil’ (read: a lot) nervous since I found out. Still, no second thoughts, so I know I really want it :]

Dye my hair black

Dyed it black last night… it’s gorgeous :D
