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.

is Running and ending off okay

start dating
It's not everything but it's nice :)

I am currently dating a very sweet boy named Poe Si Sit. He buys me stuffed bunnies and is scared of turtles.

be happy with my body (read all 2 entries…)
I am so far away right now.

I just put on about 5 pounds, I still only weigh 90 pounds but I feel fat. It makes me sad to see the way I hold myself back because of the way I feel about myself. I feel huge and misshapen. I want to feel good.

find MY theme song
This was exactly how other have described me. My mega faults and my strengths.

That Pretty Gurl by The Media Says

Well everyone sees that pretty gurl
When she walks down the streets with those pretty curls
She feeds off all the attention she gets
She never gets that much out of it

Everyone tells here that she’s beautiful
It’s never enough to convince herself
She feels like she’s not worth much at all
And never gets why she’s broken inside

She’s that pretty gurl that everyone loves
She never gets why her life is broken
She’s that pretty gurl that everyone loves?
But there’s no one right for her…

She puts on her make-up
Trying to cover every imperfection she hides from the world
She’s just so scared of being seen
But no one else would ever know

She feels… uglier… everyday she goes on
She needs… someone… to love her now

I can see straight through you like a hole in the wall
and I’m not gonna sit back and watch you fall
Take my hand and come with me tonight
Cuz Ill be the one that treats you right

learn something new everyday
I was waiting.

I was waiting for this to happen then I realized it already had. It happens everyday! I learn so much from everyone. Just today i learned about public housing in the UK and how to say my brother is fat in chinese.

be happy with my body (read all 2 entries…)

I am tiny not like tiny skinny, just tiny like a child I am skinny too but not in a way that looks really nice. I am short and I feel like since i am short i can’t be beautiful. I want to fix this. I am 4’ 9” and I want to feel lovely and elegant and not like a child.

be self-confident again
Where did you go?

I felt beautiful just 4 months ago. I was confident and happy with my self and my body. I am 4 foot 9 inches tall 14 years old and I weigh 86 pounds and I feel fat everyday. I lost the happy zeal. Where did it go? Where can I find it?

Dye my hair black
Smile your head is shiny

Black hair is shiny and beautiful. I have dyed black 3 times. just make sure you don’t look like a wig-monster

be more confident

I just figured that 14 was a good time to start. I only have 1 life so I might as well live it. Confidence is key.
