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.

drink less Mountain Dew

sweet nectar of the gods. i am so addicted. it’s a sickness.

grow out my hair again
takes forever

i had super long hair down to my navel almost, when i decided i was bored and told the guy “do whatever you want, cut it short, whatever just make me hot”

and he gave me a mullet.

so i chopped off the tail part myself (with the help of my boyfriend) and it ended up being ear-length.

worst mistake EVER!!!

now i am growing it out and it’s happening slowly but it is happening.

due to the mullet incident, i will never again cut my hair short. (i say that now….)

Own my dream car
i love my car!!!

my red jetta is fabulous. i’ve had it for about 4 years now and it’s the best. i will drive it until it falls apart!
