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.

Go to the World Cup

My boyfriend and I have already started to find places to stay, now we are just waiting for the tickets to go on sale!!! We also already have our tickets… first class baby!!! OMG it makes everything so my better!!! I’m so excited this is going to be an amazing experience and the best thing I could have wished for right out of college!!!!

Of course that it just the beginning, we are going to stay in South Africa and then head to India or Israel, we haven’t decided yet… Do some traveling mostly but also so volunteer work!

This is going to be amazing!!!!!

design my own clothes
I've started and thats a start...

I’ve been designing and making my own clothes since I was about 10 or so, maybe younger… My mom gave me my grandmothers sewing machine after she past away and I have been sewing with it for years. Recently I bough myself a beautiful singer and she runs so great!!!

Now I just want to start earning some money for all the clothes I’m making, they don’t all fit in my closet anymore! lol… I also recently started making other useful household things, my favorite is my new pillows. i got some beautiful fabrics and buttons with ribbons too… They look just like they’ve come from a magazine, and hopefully someday my designs will really be in those magazines!!!

Get a tattoo
My tattoo...

It took me forever to decide what to get… I sketched for about a year and a half and finally cam up with a beautiful design. It is in the shape of a Mazuza with an ohm in the middle. Then I had to find a tatto artist that I trusted… which took about 6 or so months. I finally found her and had her do a few re-sketches that she felt made it fit to my body better… The a week later my boyfriend and I went into the tattoo parlor and both got our tattoos… Both on our backs. It was completely painful and I almost fainted once, we had to stop and get me some food… But that was because it is straight down my spine and was hitting all my nerves… so ridiculous.

But I am so glad that I got it and am in the process of sketching out my next one which will not be anywhere near my spine!!! lol… I love my tattoo and will forever. Even though it was the most painful thing I have ever experienced!
