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.

Living in Quebec this summer, and it’s been helping a lot. I can have conversations, understand the television. Although, my written french hasn’t improved a whole lot. So next year, I’m taking a French as a second language program to help with grammar, etc, and then I think I’ll be pretty much fluent! :)



3 months in France

and I’d say I’m pretty much bilingual. I can understand most of what is said to me, and my speaking and pronunciation has improved considerably. Of course, there’s still a lot to learn so I’m going to keep this goal as incomplete to encourage me to keep going with it.



getting there

I’ve been living in France for almost 2 months. My French has definitely improved considerably, but there are still a lot of things I can’t understand. I have another month here, but I’m not sure that will be enough, so when I return, I plan on taking French courses. I really want to be bilingual!



Wow

I think this will happen a lot faster than I thought. The kids I’m taking care of here don’t speak any English at all, so when I play with them, everything is in French. It’s frustrating sometimes, but they’re really good at explaining what they mean to me. I always say stuff in English by accident, then I remember they can’t understand haha.
