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.

GothNoodleThis is my first try at modelling a female form

I’ve used Darwi Roc modelling paste. I spent 2h30 working on it. Now it has to dry for 24h and then I’ll try to sand it and make some adjustment.

I have an idea for a head, and I’ll probably try to make arms as well.

I’m feeling rather chuffed. It was difficult and more tiring that I’d thought (I need to wear my corset next time. Ouch!) but the result is closer to what I had in mind than I thought I’d be able to achieve.

My fingers are already aching for some more. :) 3 years ago


I’ve worked on a sketch to define a bit what I’d like to mold, what body shape, etc…

I’m quite happy with it. Now turning it into 3D is going to be a whole other thing! o_O 3 years ago

GothNoodleEnchanted Dolls

I can’t stop looking at the creations of Marina Bychkova. Her sense of aesthetics take my breath away.
I realized I would love to learn the art of porcelain doll making. It seems like a very difficult and long-term goal but why not? I’m going to try and study it anyway.
First, I am going to buy some clay and try to mold a human form, to see if this makes any sense at all.
I molded a naked woman figure when I was 12 maybe, it was not bad. My mother still has it. Maybe I can do something satisfying?
Anyway, it feels like it could be a relaxing hobby. 3 years ago
