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.

Irrelevant question: Does anyone here watch Game of Thrones? Just wondering :P anywho, my back is extremely itchy _ I have nothing else to report. So how are you guys? 23 months ago


ellie❤Untitled

haha yup :) and hopefully for good :P 23 months ago


ellie❤I'm baaaaack

Anyone miss me? No? Well I’m back anyways. Everything’s mostly sorted out now; my father’s a cheating asshole, we’re nearly broke and my sister is borderline suicidal. Wing progress is unbelievably slow. So how’s everyone? What’d I miss? 23 months ago


ellie❤I'm sorry.

I can’t do this anymore. Not now.
My father left us.

I am leaving. Sorry to those who are waiting for a story and are upset because they’ll never read it, but you’re gonna have to deal with it. My mother needs me more now than I want wings. So, goodbye members of 43 things, I don’t know if I’ll be back. I’ll check up now and then. But now isn’t the time for wings. I hope out all have great luck with wings. Goodbye. 2 years ago

I know but I havent put it on wattpad yet. It’s written in a notebook but not on there 2 years ago


ellie❤Untitled

haha sorry it took me so long to reply, but I’ll post the link in an entry in a few days because im on my iPod and I make a lot of typos on here :P so it will be up by Friday.. I’ll use a school computer since we don’t have one at home right now 2 years ago


ellie❤Untitled

yeah it was really freakin scary… my dad got rear ended by a motorcyclist a few years ago. And I’ll use the computers at school if I get the chance :P 2 years ago


ellie❤Untitled

If anyone still cares about the story I’m writing… The first two chapters are done. I don’t have access to a computer and I make too many typos on this iPod… So when I get to a computer I’ll post it on wattpad :) anywho, I almost got into a car accident today. The lights at the intersection were out and a pick up truck was headed straight at us, but my mom was a badass and sped up out of the way. Wing progress: pain and my back is twitching. How’s everyone else? 2 years ago


ellie❤Untitled

I would be willing to help… I have a bow in my backyard that I use daily but I’m not that good XD oh well. I’m getting better 2 years ago


ellie❤Last post was 6 hours ago? wtf?

I stayed up all night to watch the sun rise this morning. And I have to say I was not disappointed. It was so awesome, there wasn’t any noise from cars or people.. It was just birds and the wind. I think I’ll be watching the sunrise more often :) anywho, wing progress: my back itches.. That’s pretty much it. How’s everyone else? 2 years ago


ellie❤Untitled

Every time is tart writing an entry that’s longer than usual this stupid friggin iPod automatically closes Safari. So I’m not gonna bother. I suck at writing. I’m totally clueless when coming up with dialogue and descriptive words. It’s gonna take a while _ so how’s everyone? 2 years ago


ellie❤Untitled

ok sounds good!! 2 years ago


ellie❤Untitled

Alright this is great! :) 2 years ago


ellie❤Untitled

I’m not entirely sure yet. I do have an idea but I don’t want to give it away… I’m planning the story as I type this :) 2 years ago


ellie❤Untitled

Perfect! Sounds great! :) 2 years ago


ellie❤Untitled

Since everyone else is writing stories I’ve decided to also. If you guys want to be in it, comment with a description of yourself. I need your looks, personality, preferred abilities, etc. And please include negative traits too, the character needs to e believable. Also of any of you have good ideas for a title, let me know. It might take a while for the chapters to be posted because I’m starting school again in a week. The story will be on wattpad. So if you want to be in the story please give me a description of yourself. Thanks! 2 years ago


ellie❤Untitled

So you know how some of you guys have abilities? Well somethingis happening to me recently and I don’t know if I discovered an ability or not. What happens is a random thought will pop into my head, then two seconds later it happens. It’s always little things though, like the name of the song that’s playing next or a question my sisters going to ask me soon. What do you guys think? 2 years ago


ellie❤Untitled

Has anyone else read Blood Red Road by Moira Young? I know that’s random but I’m wondering… It’s a really good book so I would recommend it to anyone who hasn’t read it :P the style of writing is difficult to read at first but I got used to it quickly and fell in love with the book. So wing progress: extremely itchy back. That’s all for now! 2 years ago


ellie❤Untitled

I’m alright, a little nervous because of school :P 2 years ago


ellie❤Untitled

So today my mother took me to this sale and I found The Complete Works Of William Shakespeare for like $2.25 :D I just really enjoy Shakespeare so I had to get it. Ugh, registration for my school is in 3 day, then school starts a week after that. This summer has been mostly uneventful, besides stumbling upon this website :) my back is incredibly itchy right now.. How is everyone else? 2 years ago


ellie❤IT'S SO F**KING HOT

For the past few days the average temperature has been about a hundred degrees. (ok I might be exaggerating just a bit but it’s still hot.) my back has been twitching recently and it’s very uncomfortable because I don’t know when it’s going to happen. So, progress is good for me, how are you guys?
P.S. my best friend and I are thinking of taking a belly dancing class :D I just think its really beautiful and plus itll be good exercise. What do y’all think? Thats all for now folks! 2 years ago


ellie❤Untitled

I know, it’s just that group of people that I hate. I thought Christianity was about tolerance but they are so incredibly ignorant and hate everyone that doesnt agree with them. okay my rant is now over 2 years ago


ellie❤random off topic post

This has bothing to do with this goal but I NEED to talk about it. I was on YouTube and I came across a bunch of videos about the Westboro Baptist Church. It really sickens me the thing these people were saying. I know it’s a big issue with them hating I soldiers and gays and all and I just wanted your guys’ opinions. I don’t want to start some religious debate shit, I just got so mad watching those videos that I screamed and decided to ask all of you. Sorry for the off topic post, just had to get that out there 2 years ago


ellie❤Untitled

I haven’t had Internet since Monday so now I have to scroll through so I can catch up on Alex’s story _ (which is awesome, btw) school starts in less than two weeks! Gaaaahh. I don’t think anyone will recognize me since I got taller, got my ears pierced twice and got my braces off XD wing progress: back pain and lots of soreness. That’s it for now :)

Aw I’m sorry :( I hope you find him or he comes back soon 2 years ago

So there I was, just lying in bed as per usual when for some reason I get up and look at my bed. And I am greeted by the amazing sight of about half a dozen small, grey feathers on my bed. So yeah, I am extraordinarily happy right now. Also I can’t wait for the story by TisaWings (I think that’s her username… Right?) anywho, my character’s a total badass and can manipulate fire. So, how’s everyone else? 2 years ago


ellie❤Untitled

well I am working on becoming pyrokinetic so if I had the ability to manipulate fire….
ooh wait! I am also working on becoming a shifter, shifting into a tiger because that is my spirit animal. so if that isn’t too much to ask… I’ll take either it doesn’t have to be both :P 2 years ago


ellie❤Untitled

aaawwww yeah thank you so much for including me! It’s gonna be awesome 2 years ago


ellie❤yayyyy

So I guess I’ll start with looks. I’m about 5’6” with frizzy, curly red hair that stops at mid back. I usually wear it in a braid or down. My skin is fair, but not incredibly pale and I don’t have many freckles. My face is heart shaped, and I have a small nose and arctic blue eyes. My eyebrows and eyelashes are lighter but still visible. I don’t have braces but I have dimples. I’m slightly curvy but still thin; I’m a size three I think. I’m shy around people I don’t know or dislike but crazy around friends. I brush off insults but if anyone insults my friends or family shit’s gonna go down. I’d just like my name to be Ellie but do you need a last name?.... hope this helps! can’t wait to read the story :) 2 years ago


ellie❤Untitled

can I be a character too? I’ve always wanted to be in a story :P 2 years ago
