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.

ChristinaCthulhu rising? Nah.

Surprisingly, this wasn’t that bad.

I was prepared for the pain. I knew that wouldn’t bother me, and truthfully, it hurt a whole lot less (in general) than getting my eyebrows done. No, I was ready for the pain.

What scared me was the drop-drawers, in-depth scrutiny by the technician herself. I mean, come on, there’s the image of the technician peering at your bits with a magnifying glass. Is she judging? Is she a pervert? What if I’m the pervert? Am I the only one that wonders these things?

It really wasn’t that bad. I went down into the cave (at this salon, the waxing room is in the basement, where the ceilings are super low), where I was told to remove my bottoms while she stepped out of the room. She left me a towel to cover up with, so I wouldn’t feel so exposed.

Calling it a towel was an extremely generous statement. It was more of a glorified face cloth. If I had been relying on it to make myself more comfortable, I would have totally been screwed. I suppose that’s the point, though. It’s mocking smallness was probably to push you towards the inevitable. You know, the inevitable that you’re paying for?

Fortunately, about when she told me to take off my bottoms, it turned from nervousness to a sense of gynecological weariness. From my aesthetician, I immediately got the sense that she’s seen it all, dealt with it all, and don’t worry, you couldn’t even begin to be as bad as the client with Cthulhu’s head peeking out. We ended up having an interesting conversation as she sat there, ripping my hair out. I think a good waxer would keep you talking, as it keeps you from dwelling. Dwelling makes the owwies stronger.

Yes, there was a magnifying glass involved, but by that point I was comfortable enough that she could have probably brought in a parade and I would have been like” keep the noise down, please.”. As far as the pain went, it wasn’t that bad. The very top hurt more than the sides, and the crease where your legs join your body hurt the worst of it all. In general, eyebrow waxing hurts more than this, so if you’ve got that, then if you can get over the mental hurdle, you’ve got this. 19 months ago
