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.

Grow my hair long (again) (read all 2 entries…)
It has been 10 months..

since Ipractically shaved off most of my hair and it looks terrible, all the layers are different lengths, there’s no style, as that would involve cutting (my hair is a bit strangly and thin, nad at the moment the longest layer sits above jawline, and shortest halfway down ear.)

Its a lot heavier on top, and I feel like i look ridiculous, also for some strange reason, my hair is growing faster and thicker on my left side??

I’m just fed up of waiting,and I’m running out of patience…

Beat my depression (read all 3 entries…)
i've decided..

that i’m happily depressed, i’ve tried everything, and at the end of the day, i think i have to learn to get on with myself, and be my own best friend first, find myself, know myself and then be myself.I think thats he only way i’ll get through these dark phases of my life.

finish accutane
1 month left!!

my skin has cleared up, but is very red, and i’ve noticed how badly my skin has scarred!! :(

cant wait for the final results, i hope it lasts!!
