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.

- The Robots.

I’m using The Rosetta Stone at school. I don’t use it as often as I should though. It’s a pretty niffty program.

Hmm. Well. I haven’t done it this year. I don’t know if I’m going to?
I did put alt french on my schedule for next year though.
But, at school you need two years of a langauge to graduate.
Ahhh. Maybe where they were going to have me not to do it, they won’t have me? Or just one will be okay? or they will have me take something outside? I honestly don’t know. I would like to try it though. I always liked french. I just missed so much school. It was hard to keep up. I did good in 8th grade though I believe.

Letting you go free..

I took French 1 in 8th grade. Freshman year, I signed up for french 1 instead of french 2 because I didn’t feel that I grasped everything. After a few weeks, due to some other stuff involving anxiety and missing school and whatot, I dropped the class. The next year, I signed up for spanish, much to my dismay because I still wanted to learn french, but it wasn’t possible because I couldn’t go to the class. I ended up not finishing the spanish either. This year, my school has bought the Rosetta Stone for myself and a few other people who were under the same curcumstances.
We installed it today, so I’ll probably try it tommorow.
I don’t remember that much!
Hopefully it comes back to me a bit.
