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.

Losing weight and becoming fit

Many ages ago when I began college my friends used to tell me I was too skinny. I didn’t really see what they saw. One day I was walking past a mirrored building and finally saw what they saw. Oh how I wish I could see that same person now. I have put on about 60 pounds since then. Many people say I carry it well but I want to lose at least 25 pounds and get tight. I have excersized regularly before and know what to do but right now I am not motivated. Hopefully soon I will become motivated and begin getting my body tone and in shape.

let my hair go natural
Natural hair

I have been putting chemical relaxers in my hair since 9th grade. I have now grown tired of paying my money and sitting in a hair salon all day and night. I am thinking about letting my hair go natural. I have always loved the look of dreadlocks and considering this as an option. Have not made up my mind yet. My hair is pretty long and still has chemical in it so I am now searching for an option to begin dreading without cutting my hair. Not sure if this can be done.
