a blog for when you just can't even though


The rundown, the skinny, the big idea, the squeeze, the elevator pitch bio:

My name is Jayson (Clury) Lynn

I am a makeshift polymath, sharing lessons and learning along with everyone else through the hit podcast, Adulthood Is… I have worked in the music industry, politics, marketing, public relations, agriculture, non-profits, journalism, and more. I have been in-front and behind cameras, but mostly I just like to find problems and write about solutions. I have always prided myself and my work on offering a set of fresh eyes to problems and issues. Adulthood Is… the blog is the culmination of a desire to share what I have learned about adulting, while continuing to reach out and learn. Sharing my findings along the way, because we are all just trying to figure out what adulthood is.
