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.

Enroll in Voice Class ASAP
Open and Out

“What??! I can’t hear you!” was a recurring ring in my ear today as I was performing a scene from Mrs. Klein. What has happened to my voice? I thought I had made some progress but the hard realities that a voice teacher from England told me, of not skipping vocal exercises even for a week, hit me hard. Today my teacher in this workshop (amazing, inspiring, man), had to keep reminding me of my current vocal size being inaudible on stage. I go up again in a day when the workshop ends but meanwhile I need to start immediate work on my voice! ahhhh…..wait, I mean AAAHHHHHHH…..

attend a Meetup (read all 2 entries…)

Last Thursday I was in the park downtown sitting on a bench near someone with a beautiful voice strumming on his guitar singing passionately. There was barely any sun seeping thru in this early part of the evening. I had gone there to memorize some lines but then felt in the mood to write about my current events. I was there for an hour when I got a text message on my phone. It was a classmate from my French class texting me from a meetup at place in the eastvillage, but I was content in my spot at the park and not that interested in going. A few minutes later another mate called me insisting that I stop by. So I ended up going . I must admit this time it was quite enjoyable. I wasn’t there long but it made me decide to go to the Monday one that was happening at a restaurant that I like in the lower eastside. So yesterday I went. The atmosphere was lovely and there was a great mix of francophiles to converse with. Glad I gave it another shot b/c it does help me in my application of the language, with my “creative” grammar and all;)

Go Ice Skating at Rockefeller Center this winter
yet another season slides by

What can I say I‘ve hovered over that railing and watched them sliding, falling,spinning and turning away. Something I haven’t done since I went to a rink with my friends in middle school…but even then I never did do the sliding, turning or acrobatics part but more the falling, hanging onto friends and the railing. So another winter skating season has gone by and I never made it onto the roc skate rink. I need point to a date and make an event of this now for next year with some friends.
