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.

not too bad so far

I took a lot of Spanish classes in high school and college so I’m already familiar with a lot of the rules and many of the words I’ve come across. I bought a workbook at Barnes and Noble for $15 that is actually very helpful. Its called the “Complete Italian Grammer Review”. Not only does it teach grammer, verb conjugation and sentence structure, but also some vocab. I like it so far but I’m only on chapter 3, the easy stuff. I also bought an Italian dictionary which I’ve used already a million times.

put on hold

My learning has been temporarily put on hold. During my move across country I was going to listen to these cds, but I never did. I still will eventaully. Also, all the time that I have right now goes to looking for a job. Once my life is more on track (which will be soon) I’ll be able to take it up again.
