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.

Necesito para empezar a trabajar en mi español ahora!

Necesito empezar a trabajar en mi español ahora!

This sentence is supposed to say: “I need to start working on my Spanish now!” I’m planning on being in Spain later this year for the Camino de Santiago. I have no illusions that I’m going to be able to “speak Spanish” by then or have any sort of fluency, but I need to start working on some very basic stuff so that I can at least make basic financial transactions and ask for directions and such.2 years ago

Estoy buscando algo.

I am searching for something. (Hopefully, I got this right. I wanted to put “Busco algo.” but from what I could tell when researching the verb/phrase is that “estoy buscando” would be more appropriate.)2 years ago

Soy en paz.

I am at peace. (I know it “should” be estoy because being at peace is something that is seen as something that can change… but I feel that I’ve gotten ahold of something deeper and long lasting very recently… something that exists regardless of what is happening externally or on the surface.)2 years ago

Estuve mareado todo el día.

“I was sick all day.” I hope I picked the right word for “sick”... there seemed to be a several options when I looked it up. (It’s odd how “día” is masculine since it ends in ‘a’.)2 years ago

Hoy, gané algunos dinero.

Today, I made (earned) some money. (I’m not entirely sure if algunos is appropriate or not… the way to express “some” in Spanish seems to vary quite a bit depending on what you are talking about.)2 years ago

Caminé cinco kilómetros en mi caminadora. (Latinoamérica)


Caminé cinco kilómetros en mi cinta de andar. (España)

I walked five kilometers on my treadmill. (I don’t understand, though, why it is “de mi caminadora” instead of “en mi caminadora”, though… but from what I could tell from researching it on Google, “de me caminadora” seems to be the way it is expressed.)2 years ago
