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.

get a bikini wax

It was really no problem!
People over hype how much it hurts.
I actually laughed a bit while it was happening.
It didn’t hurt that much and it was totally worth not having to shave for 3-4 weeks!
If the wax is too hot, tell the person waxing you because it shouldn’t be. If you go to someone good it’s not bad at all.
I went to Glow Napa Valley ( it cost me $30 and it was wonderful.
Um.. .. no photos of this one ;-)

Conquer my fear of heights
Kjerag Boulder

i jumped from a cliff that is 1,000 meters above the fjord to a rock wedged between two cliffs over the fjord. Fear of heights conquered. My legs were shaking, i’m not sure if jumping on or jumping off was the hardest part.
