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.

Aha!

Thanks to family and friends I’ve gotten my paws on some rosetta stone for both Tagalog and French.

Because I will be leaving for the Philippines on Christmas Day (yay!), my goal is a unit of Tagalog every day from yesterday to the day I leave. So far so good =P



I'm a native English Speaker

My lifetime goal includes learning:

French, Tagalog, and Spanish. In that order. =)



Untitled

Well, I had a fun study session last night. It was the first time I had really practiced French in a long time. Oy! And it was terrible. I kept choking up on pronunciation (I think I bit my tongue twice). Any francophone would have cringed. It’s been far too long.

You know how I practice listening lately? Watching Montreal Canadien interviews in French…Ha! I love it. Why not: hockey + French = amazing. >.< Yeah, I’m a dork.



Making it happen

So, being out of school really put a stopper to any French connection I had. I’m a complete anglophone and I hate it. I found this website though that has actually been helping me expand my vocabulary (I have all the grammar in the world, yet no words to use…).

It’s www.busuu.com It’s helpful, interacting, a variety of levels and plenty of languages.

So here I go again, hoping to continue my French education with only myself as a teacher. I’m considering taking courses at the college if I can pull up my competence in it.

My advice: Do a little bit every day. No matter how little or insignificant. Even learn a word or two. It’ll all add up in the end.
