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.

This… will be receiving a series of SMART goals in 2008. Stay tuned.

Chapter one - down

I have completed my review of chapter 1 of Wheelock’s Latin. I’m disappointed because the workbook exercises, while tedious, are great review. However, there’s no answer key. From looking over the main text book, I think the answer key is electronic through the website, and in order to access it you need to be an instructor who has adopted the text.

Oh well, I managed to find all of the answers in the chapter itself to correct it. I’m just worried about correcting my work when I get into chapters 20+ and start hitting concepts that are new or that I never understood in the first place.

On to chapter two!


Ok… I broke out my Wheelock’s. I have the text book and the workbook. Even though this will be a pretty severe review, I plan to do one unit a week. It should take me 40 weeks to complete the book. That’s 40 weeks of constant review of Latin.

Cresida has gotten 10 cheers on this goal.
