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.

15 Minute Japanese - ju-go fun nihongo (or something like that)

Going to start using this book to refresh my memory, I’ve had it a little while but hadn’t gotten round ot using it. Had a look at the first lesson and pleased that I could remember everything from that. Tomorrow’s one won’t be so easy, I was never sure of how to refer to family members, must have missed the week that was first taught when I was having lessons.

This is so not going well

I’ve just not got time right now. Thinking I might have to start taking the cd to work to listen to at lunchtime, that might work. Shame OU don’t do a Japanese course, I should start a petition! Though I am planning to do a language degree of some sort when I finish my IT one, probably French with something, most likely either English, German or Spanish unless they start doing something like Italian or Portuguese (which would come in handy when I finally get around to taking up Capoiera!)

no level 3 class

I’ve been learning for 2 years but this year my teacher moved away and there wasn’t enough people to make it worth the college’s while finding a replacement. So I have my notes, a book or 2 and a cd, but how I’ll get on with it I don’t know

Caroline has gotten 10 cheers on this goal.
