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 Saga Continues

I finished my Latin american literature course, and the teacher was so terrible that I am not taking another course from him. What kind of college has a single faculty member teaching all the spanish classes when they offer a spanish major? Crazy. The class was a bit ridiculous, so I think I will take a break from the spanish for now…

speak spanish fluently (read all 3 entries…)

Since last summer in spain I have taken a conversational spanish class while in school in Rochester. Now I am taking a course in spanish literature at EC, which has somehow become a history course. Where the line between fluent and not is im not sure, but I feel like I am close!

It tracked me down

After classes ended in January I became a book reading hermit for 3 months. Then it happened – a job offer came and I took it because I like eating and healthcare sounds like a good thing. I’ve been working 6 months now, and I can hardly say that its my dream job. Fact is, a good job probably isn’t gonna find you, so its gonna takes some doing for me to figure out what I and get into it. I want to be productive and to make sure that my work helps all people – so it should be something that contributes to the ephemeralization of products or perhaps harvesting solar/wind energy. I love the idea of geothermal power and would like to pursue that some more. Ideally though, my job would be something not so tecnical.
