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.

Maity101The time has come...

The time has come… to move to Spain. I’m a British citizen now, which means I have the right to live and work anywhere in Europe. My husband is fed up with his career and we would like a change. We are looking into moving to Spain. 6 months ago

mimic_wI'm make slow but gradual progress

I know a couple of Spanish sayings now, and what they translate to in English. Then my friend is still teaching me the occasional word, or two.

I should practice more with Duolingo, because it helps a lot. 7 months ago

dreamgirl300Rosetta Stone Spanish Software

Today, I started the Rosetta Stone Level 2 Spanish software. I really like Rosetta Stone because it works on listening, speaking, grammar, and vocabulary simultaneously. It uses only Spanish, creating an immersive experience. My goal is to complete 3 lessons a week and listen to the supplementary audio on off-days. Today I completed the Travel Lesson. Each lesson takes about 50 minutes combined.

It seems that my biggest weakness is actually responding to the conversation prompts and remembering my Spanish and grammar fast enough to generate a coherent response in Spanish. My pronunciation is fine, but actually holding a conversation is difficult. Any ideas on how to improve? 8 months ago

aisa_basiaMemrise

Funny thing. I learned about the Memrise app from a personal financial bloger.

I’ve registered recently and able to use it for 10 minutes or so on my daily lunch break on work day. I am taking it easy by trying to maintain my existing vocabulary; because I notice that I’m slowly losing my vocabulary or the ability to react quickly in Spanish since I came home from my Central America trip.

Just like anything, if I don’t use it very often, I may lose it. This is a fun app. and it’s free.

They have other languages on there too but I’m staying with Spanish for the moment. Just don’t want to lose momentum. 8 months ago
