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.

sleep before midnight (read all 2 entries…)

FINALLY! I’ve done it. It’s so great for your health.

quit biting my nails (read all 2 entries…)

I’m ALMOST stop biting my nails :) I used glue-in nails this time. And I agree in using nail polish. You look at your nails painted and you think “how pretty” and can’t bite them, hehe :P but I’m almost making it without painting them or such. I think all that it takes is your own will and nothing more :D

Look like a pin up
Starting baby steps.

I’m doing this in baby steps. I’m growing out my hair and it’s been 9 months now. My hair is almost shoulder-length, and I’m willing to have it long enough to do some bad-ass pin-up dos. Today I’m getting rid of the clothes I don’t wear, so that I can buy some cute dresses (if I could, I’d wear a dress all the time!) and other cool things :) I already have some pin-up-like dresses, but I want more pin-up stuff, hehe :b I hope I’m on the right track to look like a pin-up, I adore the 60’s style :D
