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.

learn to bellydance (read all 2 entries…)

I’ve always had a fascination with bellybuttons and stomachs. I DON’T KNOW WHY. But that’s why I’m so attracted to the art. Also, the drumming that typically goes along with it. I’m a drummer, and it’s an incredibly enlightening sound to me. Double score!
But anywayyy.. I’ve tried some of the moves, and I’m actually catching on quite fast. I bought a tribal skirt a few months ago.. now I have a reason to wear it. :D
I have really short hair for a girl, though. I noticed that everyone I’ve seen bellydancing has had long hair. Is this… some sort of coda? Is it unusual to have short hair and do this? IDK. I just noticed that.
Thanks for the comments and support!

Seriously considering.

I want to learn this, but I’m still pudgy. I’m trying to drop the weight, and I am succeeding. I’m not that over weight, but in order for me to enjoy such a hobby, it is neccessary to do so.
Also, I don’t want my parents to know I’m learning it. Somehow it would be awkward. I want to learn for myself.
I’m also kind of tummy shy. How do you get over that? Not in front of my mirror, but I would have a problem performing for others.

learn to raise my other eyebrow

I honestly think it has to do with the dominant side of your brain. I can raise my right brow, and my left just won’t go. People like Robin Williams, who are extra-wacky and creative use more of their right brain, enabling their left eyebrow. But he can do both.
And no matter how hard you think about it, it seems impossible!
You know, I’d probably try harder if there was just ONE other person in this group!
