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.

thenewoneWorking Well

My teacher says he can help me out on Monday for good piano pieces, at the earliest, which works out pretty well. I’ll have to postpone until the following Monday, though. As for percussion, I will do some solo searching, since the audition page gives actual usable book, and even piece, examples. Local library, please deliver. 2 years ago

thenewoneDouble the Chance?

From what I read on one of the KSU School of Music pages, I am allowed to audition with more than one instrument of choice, which means I could audition with both piano and percussion. I still have plans to speak with my last-year’s teacher about pieces for piano, snare drum, timpani, and marimba/vibraphone. I also plan to ask around at school and see if I am allowed to practice with the school’s timpani and marimba. 2 years ago

thenewoneThis is Big

I have already been accepted to KSU, and I will be starting in the fall. I plan to major in both Music and Psychology. However, before I can major in Music, I need to audition with an instrument of choice. The easiest option is piano, but I have had thoughts of auditioning with percussion. With percussion, though, I would need to show proficiency in snare drum (do-able), timpani (never played before, but seems do-able), and a member of the marimba/vibraphone family (only played xylophone before, and it doesn’t really count). On Tuesday, I plan to go to my music theory teacher from last year and ask if he has any good auditioning pieces for piano. I’ll see what I can do for percussion, though. 2 years ago
