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.

improve my english

I don’t usually practice English when I’m outside school in fact I just practice English when I’m at school. When I’m chatting with my friends I sometimes put words in English just because, they make I too it kind of makes the whole conversation more funny. I also write in English when I’m playing games. In my opinion I think my grammar is good enough to understand I can express my point of view, I can explain and i can discuss without any problem. When it comes to listening to the English language I mostly hear it in my music taste. I don’t have any specific genre of music I like them all. Music is a big part of my daily life I always wear my iPod headphones listening to music. When I’m home i sometimes like to search the lyrics to some rap music to understand what they say because most of the artist uses slang so it’s quite hard sometimes. Another way to listen to English is to watch YouTube clips which I do from time to time. These are some examples of practicing my English without thinking “ok I’m going to learn some English now”. Reading is not a big part of my life so with that said I can say I don’t read much but I think I read almost as much as write in English. I love talking in English because everything sounds much cooler than in Swedish which is my main language but for some reason I suck at talking in English when it has to be serious for example when talking in class. I think it has something to do with being comfortable. :)

I would say that you clearly show that you practise your English outside school. Could you do it even more than you do now? Getting nervous is a part of the process of improval. Don’t worry you don’t have anything to be nervous about! :-)
