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.

It is going טָב

My Aramaic classes have been amazing. 1 class left, then the exam, and I’m going to try to set myself a reading schedule afterwards so I don’t lose the skill. Once I get it down a bit more, re-learning Hebrew should be fairly easy.

My Vocabulary is still weak, but should only get stronger.



Tov!

I spent our flights to and from Mexico working on my Hebrew, and got through re-doing the first 10 or so lessons in Kittel. My Aramaic class starts next Wednesday, which I’m quite excited for. It feels wonderful to be re-learning how to read even simple passages, and I look forward to being back at the point where I can read larger passages, with only the need to look up some vocabulary.

I’m particularly excited about the Aramaic class as it is my first opportunity to takea class my father is teaching, which I have wanted to do for a long time.



Berashith

Having grown up with the Bible, and having a keen interest in Biblical studies, Kaballah, and Western magick, Hebrew is a language I find both beautiful and powerful. A long time ago I took 2 years of biblical Hebrew, and absolutely loved it, but since then I have let what I knew slide.

I want to get to the point where I can comfortably read both biblical and medieval Hebrew.

I’d love to learn modern conversational Hebrew as well.

Milestone:
  • Re-do the lessons in my Biblical Hebrew textbook
  • Regain a vocabulary of at least 200 words
