I put up a post last night about the audacity of youth, and the more I thought about it, the more audacious it was. And not in a good way. It was pretty self-aggrandizing, and that's not why I'm writing here.

So now back to our regularly scheduled programming.

You know, Jason, it's a shame that you pulled it. The audacity of youth is called that for a reason, but...

You've accomplished more at 26 than many people do in a lifetime. You made a decision about your life, how you wanted to be remembered, added a slice of "See, you're wrong," to the perception of our generation (I'm X, you're Y) who have been portrayed as slackers and gamers, interested only in our quick fix.

It is drive, and desire, and will, and talent that gets a 26 year old to this point. In my humble opinion, you have every right to crow, to dance, to celebrate, because you've worked for this.

I made my points in a horribly inexcusably pretentious manner though, to the point where I'm ashamed I wrote it.

In the future I'll try to concey my thoughts but without being such a ridiculous blowhard.

For the record, I didn't think you were saying you were better than anyone else. I read it that you were proud of setting and reaching your goals.

Now I'm sorry I was so busy yesterday I couldn't get on-line! I would love to have read the article :) . . .

Jason, we've all posted things we wish we had said better, or that didn't come out quite as we intended. Don't sweat it.
