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.

Yeah. It may be a small pack for now, but we are mighty! :D I’m glad you like it, Katie. :)
Sooooo now I’m gonna tell you some stuff about meh. :D
clears throat Ahem… So I’m kinda snappish sometimes but that’s only in real life, because I can’t stand humanity… I get pissed off easily. >.> I’m good with thunderstorms, weather, ect. And I started trying to learn atmokinesis (controlling weather) and electrokinesis (controlling electricity), so wish me luck with that. I seem really good at it so far. Also, um, I love all birds of prey, and since I don’t have eagles locally, my favourite local bird is a hawk. I also (obvious) love wolves. :D I have slight ADHD, but that’s pretty much it.
Oh, and I also have a friend who is a daughter of Aphrodite.
Mind if I join here as well? :) I’m also in Anomynous Skybound, and I’d like to join any war that may go on. I’m Ostoa. I’m an experienced werewolf, daughter of Zeus, and practicer of atmokinesis (controlling weather) and electrokinesis (controlling electricity). I am good at archery, sword fighting, and pretty much any kind of fighting with a weapon.
Let’s get this goal more active! I’ll start. :D
Think… Why do you want to be a wolf? There are many reasons, I ask that you make sure yours is a good one. I’m not gonna post a big list of good reasons, but instead bad ones. If this is why you want to become a wolf… Don’t do it. Here:
1) To escape humanity
2) Because you want to be cool
3) You are a crazed Twilight/werewolf movie fan
4) Apparently you get powers or shit like that
So, if you’re responsible and mature enough to not shift for these reasons, good for you. Hope I helped a bit.
Hopefully, I will complete this goal. I’m currently quite lazy and I don’t always eat healthy. There are a few things I should do to get in great health….
•Eat healthy food
•Exercise every day
•Get enough sleep
And a few other things.. So, I wish everyone else luck with this! :)
I’ve been dreaming about wolves and werewolves my whole life! :) I guess this goal is complete then. Claps Yay!
I just wanted to inform everyone (not that anyone cares XD) that shifting is going AWESOME. :D You guys all helped a lot, posting links about wolves or shifting, and thanks for that. I’ll hopefully succeed in a full shift one day. How is everyone else’s shifting, or just general life? If anyone wants to talk, I’m here to listen .
Hi… uh… So, what’s this goal about?
EDIT: Nevermind, I read the older posts and now I get it. I’m Otsoa, by the way. Experienced werewolf, daughter of Zeus, learning atmokinesis (controlling weather) and electrokinesis (controlling electricity). At your service, in case of any battle. Also, I am trained in archery, sword-fighting, and pretty much fighting with weapons in general. I’d love to be a fighter, if possible.
Hi, how is everyone? Shifting going alright? I’ll help anyone who needs it. :) Also, hopefully we get more members soon and grow as a pack.
So… I don’t know what else to say. :P
Hi I’m Otsoa! I’m a female Poly-shifter, and I’ve been shifting for 4 years. I’m just looking for perhaps some male werewolves/shifters/therians to chat with, and who knows? Maybe I’ll find a mate one day. :) By the way, I’m 12 years old but I’m very mature and experienced as a werewolf.
I have an online pack! It’s ~Yellow Moon Pack on my goals list. It’s for all therians and otherkin, not only wolves. :)
The Hunger Games is so awesome!! If you haven’t already read them, I think you should. My friends and I are gonna see the movie together. :)
Sorry if this is spam, but there is a HUGE thunder/lightning storm where I live! Lightning lights up the entire sky, and thunder is literally shaking the house. XD So if the power gets knocked out, may not be here for the day.
Back onto the topic of shifting… So I’ve decided, since it’s been a while since I truly practiced shifting of any kind, I’ll take it from the top. Again. Good idea, or no?
Alright, a second member! Does happy dance Welcome Mermaidkatie! :D
Hi, I think that I might be a demigod (maybe). How do I know if I am? I was thinking I might be a daughter of Zeus. But I really don’t know… I was almost hit by lightning this morning, if that’s a sign. XD But I was thinking of this long before that.
Awesome, let’s welcome MoonMist into the pack. Congrats on being the first member here. :) I’m working on a pack website.
