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.

Thanks to a caring, sweet, handsome and charming man called….......what’s his name? .....hmmmmmmmmm…..................wait wait….......let me think….. I think it’s Bruce :D (I warn you ladies, don’t try to hit on him or even touch him, I’ll kill you. He’s mine)
Thanks a lot Bruce for encouraging me to do something new!!!!!

dye my hair black or blue-black (read all 2 entries…)

my natural hair colore is dark brown, so dying it black won’t be a drastic change, but for some reason everyone is saying I would look UGLY and goth if I dye it black. I’m just a little hesitated because of that.

go to the mall and buy a new t-shirt this week :) (read all 2 entries…)
how cool

if all my goals were that easy :)

find a true friend
I don't know why I set this goal

I already have two WONDERFUL friends…..but they both don’t live in the country that I’m living in right now <—maybe that’s why I wrote this goal, but not seing your friends everyday is not a big problem…you could still contact them by phone or the internet

convince my uncle to smile while getting his picture taking (read all 2 entries…)
he gave up

after hours of begging and begging and begging hehe…...uh I feel relieved now

be a vet (read all 2 entries…)
not really for me

I set myself this goal just because I LOVE to be with animals, but I don’t think I will like it in vet school, I’m just not interested in animals anatomy, physiology and such classes.

convince my uncle to smile while getting his picture taking (read all 2 entries…)
my nicest relative

I love his smile, he looks like a rabit :) he never smiles in picture because he has a broken tooth :) but he’s so handsome even with a broken tooth…I don’t know why no one in my family agrees with me. just because he has a big nose and no eyebrows it doesn’t mean he’s not beautiful. They say I find him so handsome just because I love him, not true, I would say he’s beautiful even if he’s rude and mean, plus he’s a saggitarius!
I want him to just smile once in a pic, I took him a picture surreptitiously while he was laughing with my dad, see pic above (don’t get scared by my dad’s red eyes LOL), but he immediately stopped smiling when he say the cam. They only thing left to get him smile is by begging him!!

Visit my sweet Bruce in San Antonio
you can cheer it now!

I promise I will visit you once I finish H.S but first you’ll have to promise me that you’ll visit me in Egypt too :)

Help more animals

I take some food for some homeless dogs neer my home sometimes, but I don’t feel that’s enough, I feel I could do more. Just a few days ago I saw a puupy running down the streets, he was going to get hit by two cars, I was going to take him and wash him and take care of him, but my dad was sitting next to me in the car and he didn’t agree about taking it, how mean. I still feel sad about that little dog, even my doggie felt sorry for him I guess…..he was shaking and doing weird things when he saw him. I was bitten by a rabid dogs a few years ago while I was trying to give her some food, that’s why my dad didn’t agree with keeping the puppy…...he was worried about me ..duh but that dog was so little, he can’t be rabid. anyways I was taking my dad to buy him cigarettes when I saw that puppy, so when we were on our way I convinced him of taking it…that’s if I can find it in our way back…...but I couldn’t find it :(

start studying everyday
I'm going to start studying today for

biology, physics, Arabic, English and psychology and for the SAT Reasoning test. the first three are really hard, 400 pages each and every page is included in the final exams, I still have 6 months for my finals but I have only one month for my SAT’s so I should focus on it more than the others right now.

just wanted

to set an easy goal :)

embarrass my cousin (read all 2 entries…)
she's a bitch

she tried to embarrass me infront of my parents the last time she visited with her father, I didn’t do anything about it because at that moment I didn’t realise that she was trying to embarrass me or something. she’s 20 years old I can’t believe she would say something like that. she thought by doing that my parents would get mad at me or something but she was wrong, unlike her parents mine are so open-minded and I never had to hide anything from them.
it seems very mean that I want to embarrass her. but she DESERVES it. let’s hope I can make it.

decide on a major and what to do for the rest of my life
it's driving me crazy

everybody is asking me about what I want to study in college and I simply have no answer, it’s my last year in high school and it seems like everyone is so sure about what they want to do except me. I’m not even sure I want to go to college.

be more social (read all 2 entries…)
I have a serious problem

all I’m doing these a days is sitting down 12 hours a day watching TV and doing nothing else. the only one that I talk to is my dog, no one can stand me anymore and I can’t stand anyone or anything. Haven’t gone out socialising in over 4 months. I really don’t like to go out alone I feel like an idiot. non of my two friends like to go out, so the only choice I got is TV, I have noticed that my face is getting flabby lol. when I went to my new school one of the teachers asked me while I was walking around if I was looking for my child, he couldn’t believe I was a student …god that’s so funny.
I don’t know what’s going on with me I feel like I don’t want to talk to anyone or do anything. I went to school for only one day and I don’t want to go back again…but of course I have to.

get more hugs...lots more hugs

my grandmother is coming from the US today and she likes to hug and kiss a lot :) hehehe

be more conversational

I think it’s a little hard for me to achieve this goal, I want to stop being a calm person, I like to be that kind of people who always find something nice to talk about.

draw a handsome guy
his name is todd

I think he’s very handsome, I sent the drawing for him and he said it’s very beautiful, but I’m not sure it is.

get the highest grades this term (read all 2 entries…)
we have to give up sometimes

well …. my chemistry grade point isn’t cool.

get the highest grades this term (read all 2 entries…)
still waiting

they will tell us about our grade points next sunday.
I did very ok in arabic,english and mathematics but the chemestry exam is what I’m worried about.

get a dog

I wanted to buy a big dog like American pit bull, but unfortunately I’m not allowed to bring a big dog to my home (my mom).
so I thought that the chihuahua will be ok as a small dog.
I had to sell my cell phone to buy it but I’m not regret right now it’s a very nice dog.
my mom didn’t like him in the first few weeks but now she loves him so much, all my family love him he’s like our baby now.

I still want a pit bull though.
