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.

wear my bikini this summer (read all 3 entries…)

my best friend and I went down to a local area we call the rocks. We deceided that it was not worth going out to halfway. So down there there was these two old ladies with HUGE TITS. like… HUGE! and some guy filming the pelicans for a documentry.

I took off my shirt leaving myself in my bikini top and my short shorts. I was actually fine with it. I didn’t feel self concious or anything- I promise I was perfectly sober this time! :P

It was fine till I was laying on my stomache tanning my back and my friend undid all my ties! I was stranded there. Now putting a bikini on is a little difficult for me.. being a D cup. I laughed and told her to do it back up she said “noooope” and took my cell phone. She started texting this guy I like.

I quickly did up my bikini and ran after her to get it. but ever time I got close she undid my strapes again so I gave up. The whole time the guy and old ladies are laughing at us.

The old ladies packed up and left. Leaving the film guy and us. Chelsea had the great idea of tanning topless.. sadly I followed. We forgot the guy was there until it was time for us to leave. We both sat up and he was sitting right infront of us!
ha… it was awkward we grabbed out tops and got the hell out of there!

a test.

my friend ( the one I am going on holidays avec) and some other kids went out to Pelican Rapids, which is a 40min hike from the parking lot. Now I know what you are thinking- That is far! But after the hike it is beautiful! It comes to a part of the river called the Pelican Rapids.

You are able to go out on the rocks for maybe a km into the river. It is nice for sun bathing and swimming! There is a shoot that goes from the big raging river down a shoot( just like a water slide) into a calm area.

Now I wore my bikini under my clothes because I thought I was only going to be my friend and I. I was devestated to see everyone else because then I started getting self concious. But being half drunk still that I was from the previous night’s grad party I just took of my shirt and exposed my white chubby tummy.

Whom I called my friend, cringed at the site of my and apparently bitched about me- thus she isn’t my friend anymore. I told her to suck it and that she wasn’t perfect either.

She was the only one to show any response. One of the guys kept looking at my tits… I felt very exposed because I am larger chested.. and well bikikis show a whole lot.

IT’s still spring so wish me good luck in August! Where the real test of confidence happens with strangers.

Parles-Tu en Francais?

I’ve been taking second language French courses since I was in grade 2! So that has been 9 yrs of french! After highschool I want to get a minor in French because I also want to become a nurse and work with Doctor without Borders. They send alot of people to Africa and they even state they’d prefer if you spoke French :)

Bought ONE!

My extremely fit friend convinced me into buying a bikini. I’m rather large tested so my thoughts was just to wear it in help of support.. well that’s not what she meant.

We are going to BC, Canada. My plan is to wear it during our summer vaykay there. I am a whole 5’5” and 150lbs. My stomache is what I am most self concious about so wish me luck!

I might get some practice wearing my bikini this weekend when my friends and I go swimming at our local lake.

Wish me luck!

work with Doctors without Borders
It's going to take time.

I’ve always wondered what was I going to do after high school?
I know I want to do something that will help people and I am interested in medicine. So voala! Doctors without Borders tailors to two things I want to be involved with later in life.

I have one last year of high school then I either will ge straight into nursing or get into pre-med.

Wish me luck!
