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.

Just a little update

My decision: Japanese and Chinese. So this is going to be a hard semester… especially since my finals (all 4 of them) are located within a period of 6 days. xD


One year in and I can’t believe how fast time goes. I’ve made so many friends both Swedish, studying Japanese, and Japanese. It’s been a great year but right now I’m at a crossroads.

My reason for learning Japanese except that I love the language was so that I could start a diplomacy programme. Turns out that they didn’t have Japanese in the entrance exams for 2011 (but they did in 2010). This year I applied for Chinese classes, and got accepted. But now I don’t know if I should stick with Japanese, switch to Chinese (to be able to join the diplomacy programme) or try to study them both at the same time. decisions (>~< )

Although first things first, I have an exam coming up in 11 days. x’P

Japanese II

Japanese II starts in a week. I’m gonna go buy the books today. :D Can’t wait!

Japanese I, completed.

I completed my first Japanese course last week. I got a D (ECTS)(US: C+ to B-) on my finals and a C (ECTS)(US: B (3.0)) as a grade on the course. :D Japanese II here I come!


Had an exam a few weeks ago, which I aced. Finals are coming up… nervous! でも、毎日日本語をべんきょうしています。がんばってね!

1st year

Started my first year of Japanese @ Stockholm U. last month. Loving it so far!
