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.

workout everyday (read all 4 entries…)
Getting back on it

I haven’t gotten on my stepper since my mother got onto me about it. I still have been doing exercise(dancing), but I don’t think that it is as effective without the stepper, so I’ll start using it again tomorrow.



workout everyday (read all 4 entries…)
Oh well

I did work out today, but I didn’t get to get on the stepper. I had been going to hard on it yesterday and my mom said I couldn’t get on it today. I did do about 75 sit ups and played dance central

Feelin' good

7000 steps in 60 miniutes! I didn’t keep track of the sit ups, so I hope I did enough.

I'm not insecure...

...about my body!! I love my body. I’m not fat at all; I know that I’m good where I’m at. However, with summer coming up, I have the desire to acquire abs. So I’m going to work for them.
I plan on doing about 6000 steps a day on my stepper, preceded and/or followed by 50-100 sit ups. I think that if I get up my stamina or endurance or what ever I can do even more.



get up on time (read all 2 entries…)
Whoo!

I got up right when the alarm went off! It was nice to have so much time left over in the morning after getting ready. I have got to keep this up!

Bathroom

I cleaned the bathroom today! and I vacuumed my room.

Meh.

I haven’t been doing so well on this, but I have an idea. If I put my alarm next to the light switch, then I will turn on the light considering that I’m already standing beside it. I’ll how this works out.



stop being lazy (read all 3 entries…)
ahem...

So this goal has not been going to well at all. I just, I’m lazy!!! It’s hard to stop what has been a natural behavior my entire life. I just need to learn to stay consistent. Which is going to be hard, like everything else. I will push through!!

Uh-oh

So the school year is coming to an end and my German class has to cram the rest of our work into these last few weeks. It’s a little overwhelming. I have a project due tomorrow that I really should be working on…

I’m being lazy right now! I should be working on school work but i just don’t want to!! I need to improve and set clear standards for my self



Share a night under the stars
Untitled

Nobody ever gets out anymore!!! It’s like we are committed to making sure all of our “priorities” online are taken care of or some such nonsense. I can’t go a day without my laptop. I just believe that these things in life are far too time consuming. I want to go somewhere that I can forget everything that ever troubled me. I want to look up at the sky and breathe in the funky forest air and think that I’m living life right. (that was a really rambling kind of entry)



Learn Japanese
Untitled

There is a Japanese class offered at my school. Unfortunately I cannot take it because I already chose German. I’m hoping maybe my friends can teach me a few things. I might take online classes as well.

Still working

I changed the name of this goal to Finish because I’ve been working on it since school got back in. I still have yet to finish it, and it’s due Thursday. Wish my luck!



Try to help my hair grow (read all 2 entries…)
Perms -EDIT

So my mom just permed my hair. I just washed it and put some ORGANICS MAXIMUM STRENGTH EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL MOISTURIZING GROWTH LOTION by AFRICA’S BEST in it. I’m towel drying it instead of blow drying it because I’m trying to put less heat on it. I was hoping that my cousin would be able to braid/plait it today, but it seems like that won’t work out… T-T oh well, maybe next weekend!
EDIT
I was looking at www.ultrablackhair.com and I guess I had my terms mixed up. Perm=curl. Relaxer=straightened. I just had my hair relaxed.So the title should be relaxers



Keep my room clean (read all 2 entries…)
Not a good day

So I got home last night from my grandparents’ house. I was surprised to see that my room was relatively clean. However, my mom made me angry so I ended up dumping all the stuff in my suit case on the floor and going to bed. I picked up some of it but there is still somethings that I need to put up. I’m feeling super lazy so who knows when that will get done??!



learn french

I’m taking German in school now, but it is only a 2 part course. My next 2 years I would like to take French. My vocabulary is limited to random words that I picked up from books and people. I hope that I can get a little ground info on the language before I take it my junior year.

I’m taking a class at school. I really enjoy learning the language and I hope to visit the country some day.



Try to help my hair grow (read all 2 entries…)
Cursed

I have the bad hair genes. My hair is very brittle and it doesn’t help that I get a perm every six weeks. To top it off, a while back I made the horrible decision of getting my hair cut. It now stops at about the top of my ears and the rest is just miserable baby hairs. I really don’t know what to do. I hope that once I finish high school, I can stop putting perms in my hair all together. People are just a little too judgmental for me to do it now. Until then, I’m going to try my hardest to keep my hair healthy so that it will grow out.

Untitled

Who doesn’t want to do this? I think as a young girl, it is important for me to learn how to keep my room clean. Ever since I was little it has been a struggle. My sister always seemed to have a knack for it, but I never could keep my room looking good. So today I plan on cleaning my room. (It looks a mess right now)
