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.

Last class

Me and this other dedicated girl attended the class. It was amazing to know the moves and perform them even better this week. We did our closing routine to the Sleeping Beauty song and that was that. Our instructor said we were both ready for Ballet 2! Mission accomplished!

Fourth and Fifth classes

Last week, only one other girl showed up. I guess folks forgot to come! We performed a routine and included jumps! Very fun stuff. We also got intimate feedback since it was only the two of us.

This week, we reviewed the routine and learned new things. It’s so hard for the instructor to teach new things without people in the class who don’t show up consistently. I’m the only one that has showed up to every class so far. I just discovered I have the Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake music so I’m totally practicing to that. Can’t wait for my last class next week! I don’t know what I’ll do with myself without ballet. Will have to sign up for another class.

Third Ballet Class

I really love ballet and I will probably keep going until whenever. I see myself taking more ballet classes with professionals like at the Broadway Dance Center. Yay for ballet! I also want to watch a ballet soon. I’m sure I’ll be able to recognize all the moves we’ve been doing in class.

Today, we did a combination of moves in which we really did look like we were dancing! How exciting! We’ll be semi-pros by the end of the class. :)

Second Ballet class

This week we reviewed all the moves and we really did look like ballerinas by the end of the class! It was so satisfying. I want to go see a ballet performance to inspire me to dance well.

I love ballet.

First ballet class

I loved it! All the stretches and moves…for someone like myself that is terrible at coordination, I was able to do these moves with ease. If anything, what it has given me is the incentive to have much better posture and to correct myself more often than usual.

I am a little sore and I cannot wait for my next class!

Signed up for a class!

At Shockra studios, they offer absolute beginner’s classes. I signed up for a six week class starting January 24th! Am super excited! Yay for me!
