“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Beginning Beats and Ending Ditties”!

Hi, everyone!

Happy New Year!

It’s a new year and a new decade! It’s a time of new beginnings, both formal and informal. However, it’s also a time of both formal and informal endings.

On the formal side, certain seasonal jobs have ended, certain legal or work-related matters have met their deadline, and the wall and desk calendars have reached their expiration dates.

On the informal side, well, is everything else. New Year’s resolutions, personal and professional goals, a renewed spirit, and so much more.

So let’s get all those frustrations out! Once we vent, we can keep these songs in our back pockets for when things get strained this season. We’re diving deep into a den of…

Hi, everyone!

It… is… time. For Christmas/Chanukah/Kwanzaa/St. Nicholas Day/winter/many other holidays!

But I understand: while the snow gives some people a magical feeling, it leaves others cold. And while the holiday season is a joyous time for many, it can also be overwhelming, stressful, and even isolating.

But not to worry! Jammin’ with Jamie is here for you, and we’ve brought a sack full of…
