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.

pierce my lip

Mom won’t allow it. But I’ll do it sometime anyways ;]

stand up to a bully

I know this person at my school. He curses at people, but since I always get an assigned seat near him, he bullies me most. Once I tried standing up to him but we actually got into a small fight. He was so much stronger than me but it was actually funny to stand up to him for the first time. We pushed and tested our strength on each other. He started to laugh a little because I was questioning his strength. He asked if I wanted to fight but I said no. I guess he forgot about that, though. After, when I went outside to wait for my friends, he came out and pushed my books to the floor. I started screaming at him and I was completely embarrased. He just walked away like nothing happened. He IS scared of a few people. A girl who was even skinnier than me got him scared to death because she was stronger.
Another girl chased him down the street.
I just don’t know why I can’t scare him.
I’ve been wanting to stick up for myself to this person for a long time.
Can anyone help?

pierce my ears again (read all 2 entries…)

Does anyone know when you could get piercings where they don’t look at your ID?. Because I’m not eighteen yet and I don’t want my parents knowing.

See all entries ...


I want to:
