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.

Taking a break from Spanish, working on Portuguese.

The college, or somebody, has decided that foreign languages no longer count fill the elective credit requirement for degrees, so I’m not going to be taking Spanish classes now. I want to, but I simply don’t have the time to take extra classes right now. Also, I’ve decided to pursue my interest in Portuguese in my free time, so I’m taking a break from Spanish for a bit.. I think they’re probably similar enough to be both helpful and confusing.

Getting help from community.

There is a nice woman that works at the little Mexican Grocery right in front of our apartment building that I intend to ask if she’ll help me occasionally with my Spanish class.

first day of Intro to Spanish

Today I had my first class of Intro to Spanish. The instructor seems to be right nice guy and I feel this will be the class this, my first, semester I will look forward to the most. Hopefully I’ll be able to continue with the later Spanish courses in the following semesters.

Starting Intro to Spanish course

One of the classes in my first semester of school is Intro to Spanish.
