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.

2 Months in Guatemala

After 2 months in Guatemala I am a much more confident speaker of Spanish. I still have a lot to learn but I feel better about my ability to be understood. This semester I tackle the Into to Hispanic Lit class again. I hope I can pass it this semester. I am contemplating having to drop my my Spanish minor if I can’t complete it on time. None the less my goal is to learn spanish… not complete the minor I am going to keep trying with my minor and we shall see.

Playing with Language

I really enjoyed my composition course. It really gave me a chance to play with the language. Our last composition was a creative piece which i used poetry and pros in. It was difficult but fun. I got an A in the course.

Next semester is Introduction to Spanish Literature. I’m already looking forward to it. Though it will require long hours, reading is still difficult for me. I am getting better with my spanish slowly but surely.


Alright so I got a B in the last course. I was a little dissappionted with myself. I also failed to review even once this summer.

This semester has me in my first composition course. So here is hoping I can do well. I’ll probably need to put in some hours reviewing.

It’s going to be a heck of a work load this semester, this course is also writing intensive. My class list reads like a travel brochure:

Greece, East Asia, Spanish, African Cultures… lol wish me luck.


The Intermediate Conversation and Grammer course I am taking kinda sucks. I fully admit I’m not great at speaking, and the set up of this class is… odd to me. Also I think I am not as well prepared as some of the other students… I can’t conjugate in future tense yet. Blahhh…

Going to have to put in some more effort some how…. have to figure out where I can find more effort first though.

Yup luck

I got the A. Wow. Now I just hope I get my voice back. I’ve got three weeks I should be fine.

Looking at a summer course in Costa Rica if I don’t do Ethnographic field school in Mexico next summer. Going to have to get approval for that though.

Onward and Up Ward

I nailed the final for this semesters Spanish course. It was a lot easier then I expected it too be. However, I only did minimally well on the oral performance. I need to be a point or 2 higher to get an A. So mathematically I know I earned a B this semester.

However, my teacher hinted that I would be doing better than that, because my participation grade is great and my composition was amazing. her words. So I may have really really really lucked out this semester.

Next semester is my conversation course. I need a lot of improvement there.

So far- so good

My class is going well. In the A range I think. I also think that i am beginning to pick up the language. Some of it is coming to mind easier anyway. I have high hopes. 3 more weeks then onward and upward.

I keep hoping I’ll get through things well. I really wish I was catching on quicker. But as long as I’m persistent I will get it.

Fall 2010

So tomorrow I start Intermediate Spanish 1, which is the third class in the series for my minor. Yay.

I am really disappointed in myself for not spending more time on Spanish this summer. Here’s to a good semester.


I’ll be taking another class this fall, my second at university. I took 2 class at Community College, and 2 in high school, but they never stuck because I don’t get enough practice with it. I learn it well, then for get it from lack of use. Hoping to do much better this time.
