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 swing dance

each semester for the past 3 I have been taking dance classes offered through the university. First was ballroom(foxtrot, waltz, viennese waltz and something else), then latin (salsa, merengue, y rumba), and finally swing (west coast, east coast/triple and single swing). Just the other day I finally got to put some of what I learned into real world practice outside of class. It was great!

own a hybrid car
halfway done...

I still don’t own a hybrid myself, but my dad just bought one recently and I might get to see it and possibly drive it if my parents come to visit this Christmas.

go back to germany

the last time I was there was when my dad was stationed there during the late 80’s. I don’t remember much so someday I wanna go back to be able to experience it better (I was ages 3-6 last time so not much stuck with me).
