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.

Grow my leg hair


Recent activity



Seriously, just let it grow. Actually, I only shaved my legs about 3 times in my life. But the thing about attracting people is that if someone really loves you, they don’t care. Seriously.

But if you OCD about body hair, well then, if you wanna, go ahead and try, and put your OCD aside (woah, I just realized I made a half rhyme, and in good time). 6 years ago

firefly0513Not worth It

It was driving me completely buggy. Made it three weeks, and while it was certainly not fully grown out, it was getting there, I wear shorts at home nearly all the time, everytime I saw my legs I was disturbed. Suddenly I couldn’t remember why I wanted to do this. I kind of think the point was to find some kind of empowerment from it, the thing is, I know I don’t HAVE TO shave, I choose to. It made me feel gross, it robbed me of that feeling of femininity. Bottom line, I feel better about myself having shaved legs than not. That’s what matters. No bohemian for me. 7 years ago

firefly0513Entering week 2

I have shaved nearly everyday since as long as I can remember, I’m sure I could do it blind, it feels weird, but I’m perservering. Of course I want to start swimming lanes again, maybe no one will notice… 7 years ago


I KNOW! I detest any hair anywhere, but I want to go a little bohemian, and since it is winter, and I’m finally single, it seems like a good time to try. All women should do this at least once. My plan is to not shave till March 1st, so that’s like 2 months without shaving. I’ve never been able to go longer than a week without shaving, and it’s been a week, so here goes… 7 years ago
