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.

I was enrolled in a course of this during my first term in my current school. The language class was just too time consuming though so I stopped.

Once things settled, I’d love to learn this again. I’d love for it to be in the same level as my French in that I can functionally communicate with folks, can understand and read. I’d love to be fluent but (like French), I think that would just come with practice.

So yes, I’d love to learn how to read, write and talk in Sanskrit. Might take a while but it’s an interesting goal to have. 16 months ago

KayBellKnitterFirst quarter complete, on to the second!

Here’s my insight into learning Sanskrit: Sanskrit is difficult. Very complex grammar rules. In the Autumn quarter of Intro to Sanskrit (a year long course) we learned only approx 300 vocabulary words. Most of our time in the 10 weeks of the quarter was spent on grammar rules.

I really, really liked my classmates; I felt I was among “my people” in class. The coursework was very challenging, but the professor was an easy grader, so it all balanced out. :-)

I ended up with an A-.

Winter quarter starts in 3 days, so I better start reviewing NOW. 2 years ago

Intro to Sanskrit will be offered Autumn quarter at the local University. Since I am an alum, I should have no problem signing up to take the class. Intro to Sanskrit is offered every year, but only in the Autumn quarter, so it is either take it now, or wait a year. (Or find some other venue for learning it.)

I am tempted, tempted, tempted to sign up for it this year, even though taking a class five mornings a week probably will not be all that convenient…. 3 years ago
