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.

Learn to Play the Penny Whistle
Step one: buy a whistle

I bought a tin whistle (Penny whistle) at the Scottish Highland Games last Saturday and I’ve been playing. I can play the first part of “Aluette” I’ve practiced doing scales. I’m working on associating each sound with each note on a scale and also with which particular fingering. I have pretty controlled breath, but my fingering is slow.

study abroad in France (read all 9 entries…)

I’m back in the States (and have been here for over a month) and now I am waiting for my grades. I know what they are, but nothing is official until the Registrar sends them into the Study Abroad Office.

read all of Jane Austen (read all 2 entries…)
Chritmas money

I got a 100 dollar gift card and bought the Jane Austen novels that I did not already own: Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Northanger Abbey, and Persuasion. I read Emma and Mansfield Park in high school, but I need to re-read them. I read Pride and Prejudice and Northanger Abbey last month. I think Mr. Tilney is my favorite of the Austen men.
