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.

Such a chicken.....

I went shopping with my brother and there was this worker in the store who looked so good to me and I kept saying that i’d love to get to know him to my bro. We started walking out the door and my brother announces to the guy “Hey dog, my sis wants your number” I totally freaked out and dashed out the door. The guy walks out the door and said “Wait, whats wrong…come here” and I get in the car totally avoiding him. He was so cute….I am such a loser.

Have Kids
One Day!!!!

I’ve always wanted kids so I have planned my life accordingly. Living one of honor and virtue, I want to instill those same values that my mom gave me. I know the day I see the man I love holding my our seed and seeing the completeness in his eyes of what we have produced, I know I will die a happy woman. I am such a dud. Thats all I need!

grow an afro

I wore braids for about two years b/c of drastic damage from my former hair dresser. After taking them out I spent some time debating whether or not to go back into a relaxer. For about four months I wore my hair natural and rocked an afro while at college. It was a freeing experience. Therefore I say every black female should do it at least once. It was cool!

dye my hair
What Color?

Ive only had highlights in my head once with just a few mahogany blond highlight as a graduation gift to myself… im ready to do the whole head with a tint of something…..I’m a big chicken…maybe I should wait….. I still want some length anyway…

Grow my hair out
Looking for a Solution!!!

Ok so whoever knows about coarse ethnic hair knows that it can take longer than most to grow, even under proper care. I have been working on mine for a while but everytime it gets to my back it just stays…...I need help!!!!

graduate from college

I went through alot but graduated Fall 2006 from Michigan State with a B.A. in Criminal Justice!!!!If I can do it anyone can….Truly kicked my ass but I had alot of fun…I miss it already!!!

join a sorority
Sorority Life

One of the best things I ever did. I was anti-greek before but the more I learned about certain ones the more I wanted to join. Three suggestions before joining one. 1.) Enjoy atleast the transition of your first semester of freshman year without greek life. It is quite a commitment if you plan to join an active sorority. 2.) Do your homework on the sorority, even if it takes more than one semester. Hang out with them, do some community service with them whatever it takes, small and large ones are quite different. 3.) Evaluate your personal time and obligations to ensure it won’t interfere too much with school and most important commitments you absolutely can’t give up!. Overall, it can be quite the enjoyable experience…...certainly was for me!!!!!

Get my epilepsy under control

I have been diagnosed with this since July 2006. The seizures almost made me drop out of my last semester of college however I made it and graduated that Dec. The messed up part is that I have not been able to do anything since that time because I have yet to find a medication that adequately controls my seizures. Therefore my family won’t even let me out the house without being monitered at such grown age because of all the dangerous situations this has caused me. I am gonna fight this…..its just controlling everything that I had planned for my post-collegiate experience…......I got this though…With God’s help I’ll beat it!!!

pierce my nose
Nose Piercing

I’m a pretty conservative person when it comes to my appearance. I figured I deserved to come out of my comfort zone and try something new since that was my whole goal for college. I had joined a sorority, partied hard, drank liquor, made deans list, and a bunch of other stuff I would never of guessed I could do. So I figured my last semester of college should be a cool experience. I like my friends nose screw for a long time but figured it would look dumb on me. So I went and talked to a and body piercer about my nose. She said she had seen people with all kinds of f#$%@d up noses get it done and that I had nothing to worry about. So I went back to her since she had a good reputation. I paid 55 bucks to get it done. Everything was new and sterilized. She explained it b4 she did it. Before I knew it I had a 20g nose ring that was a quick pain and a little blood. It did get infected the first week bc I did’nt clean it as often as I should have. I went back and she repierced it for free and gave me a new nose screw. Within 2 months it was done healing and I could put different jewelry in it. My family freaked when I came home with it but I think I liked the attention more and was’nt bothered by the crast opinions of my conservative family….So if anyone says its not worth it….it really is…I enjoyed it….My tragus piercing is next!!!!
