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.

Getting started

The Korean Cultural Center in Los Angeles has classes, so when I move back this summer I will start taking them! I have tried free, online courses but with no success. Until then I will keep watching kdramas and trying online games to help learn Korean.

live in los angeles

after visiting Los Angeles for the first time in late 2010, I fell in love and couldn’t wait to live there! By Oct 2011, I had moved out here with my family. It’s been a great (almost) year and I will always enjoy visiting, but I’m definitely ready to get back to the east coast in a couple weeks.

see Patrick Wolf live

I finally got to see him earlier this month at the highline ballroom in nyc. I didn’t want the show to end! He was SO good, very worth the wait!
