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.

start a band : part 12

I have decided on working on every single goal on my list some more, mainly because I feel stuck sometimes and don’t know where to go. So I am also now (more) actively looking for band mates.

I do have a slight idea of the type of music I want to play / sing, and so want to put this into practice! I am too much of a paranoid person to tell you all about it just yet, but I really hope I will get on with this goal of mine. My last entry was almost two years ago and I cannot live on like this, doing nothing and procrastinating.

Volunteer : Part 2

Hello everyone!

Since I moved away from my previous place, I should say what has changed up to now : I found out there’s an agency which helps potential voluteers and those who need them to meet … All I will have to do is fill in some kind of survey asking for what I’d want to do, whom/what I’d like to help, etc. It sounds pretty good actually.

I am just not sure about two things, and maybe this sounds silly, but I grew so – partly – scared of people I don’t know whether I will be able to do that. And then, I am currently searching for a job in general, and I don’t know whether I could find one. But then again, the qualifications and knowledge I could gain from volunteering are also quite important, aren’t they?

get better at singing - part 3

Hello!!

I have started taking singing lessons from February this year on. I couldn’t go to the last lessons, but will go there again this week. It is a bit odd still, warming up one’s voice and such (It is group lessons, so others get to see it. I really shouldn’t feel embarrassed still.), but … We get suggestions on what to do better and how to breathe correctly and such.

I still struggle with sight-singing, as we don’t do that. So I need to find another way to practice this, I guess.
