As the saved notes on my phone started adding up and my Facebook posts got longer, I realized the time has come to take it to the next level.  I have always loved to write and research so combining the two to create a blog where I can share my thoughts, lessons learned (yes I’m a project manager at heart), and venting sessions.

The hardest part so far has been choosing a name; who knew someone else would take “Just Jenni!”  So why “5 Whys?”  I have always had an affinity (or problem depending on who you ask) for needing to know the why…. and why…. and why until it gets to what may be the real problem or story behind the original statement.  In December 2016, I discovered in a training class there is actually a tool for problem solving called “5 Whys” (more explanation to come in a blog post). If you know me, you will understand just how excited I was to see this was not just something I never grew out of as a child, but a useful tool to help analyze symptoms and really get to the root of the problem or original statement.

I am truly disturbed by a lot of things going on in our country right now, my plan for this page (see Project Manager) is to get to the root and try to understand not just the true “why,” but how can we work to fix or resolve them.  No promises that there won’t just be some random venting, various musing about things I love (family, music, movies, books, etc), but it will be my passion out there for any to read.

I will do my best to respond to all comments, but I can guarantee you if you use anything along the lines of “but her e-mails,” “but his birth certificate,” “so I read on Breitbart,” you will probably not like the response that you get.  I deal in facts, I try to use as much primary research as I can, I try to apply logic to it all, but I also know that with passion comes emotion and I won’t apologize for that.

Take what you can, leave what you can’t.  Try to open your eyes and heart knowing that I take pride in searching for facts and just want people to be able to have educated conversation about this thing we call life.  Hope to see you on the flip side…
