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.

I love it …is my fav 1 :D 4 years ago


I’ve been wanting this piercing for a longg time. My parents won’t let me get facial piercings for a long while, but I’m working on getting my friend to do it for me:)
I’m sick of wearing fake monroes all the time :d 4 years ago


So bad! I want it SO SO SO BAD! 4 years ago

LaurenMy piercing.

I got my monroe pierced when I was 17. I had wanted it since I was in jr. high and I finally convinced my mom after telling her that I would go and get it myself in a year anyway. The first tattoo shop we went to wouldn’t do the piercing because it was considered an “oral piercing,” meaning I would have to be 18. But another reputable shop did not have that policy.

My mom cried.
I didn’t flinch.

I didn’t swell up too bad either, which was surprising. I got scared going into the piercing shop because the girl before me who had returned due to complications with her piercing had the hugest swollen lip.

Now, a year later, I’m still very happy with my piercing. I use a push-in rod made of plastic that doesn’t irritate my gums or teeth like the metal. I usually wear a small 14k gold star. My boyfriend thinks it’s cute and it reminds me of jewel stone beauty marks of the 18th century. 4 years ago

i hope this dosen’t hurt :P 5 years ago


I want to get my monroe pierced to make a statement about piercings in general. I want to prove that not everyone with a facial piercing is a “freak”; I want to show that I can still be a “good girl” and have this. I also want to show another side of my personality and show that there’s a lot more to me than people see simply at a glance. I want to show that I’m different and do something “bad”.
But, I’m nervous about scarring and manipulating my “natural beauty”. I’m also afraid of the pain/swellig involved and whether I’ll really regret this or not.
So who knows…. 5 years ago

MentalKittyPiercing the unpierced

This was my first piercing, other than a misguided ear piercing when I was 16(!) that got infected and grew over, so I was a little bit nervous going in (needles and blood and pain, oh my!). But it went beautifully and now I’ve finally got a foreign object embedded in my face and a highly disturbed mother, so all is well.


I’ve got another on the other side! Hurrah. 6 years ago


i finally got my monroe done yesterday! it didnt hurt at all. i saw a lot of people that said it hurt but for me i didnt even realize it had gone through yet. i absoutley love it. although it didnt bother me till today the back is uncomfortably hitting my gums but im hoping its just because the bar on the piercing is too big. anyways if u want it, get it! 6 years ago
