She also has a Facebook account where she combines her personal preferences with her job, sharing stories about politics or whatever else is in the news at the time, while also posting about personal topics like the time she asked her audience what their favorite Christmas song is.
Throughout the year she has shared many articles about hobby ideas to make life easier for people stuck at home due to the pandemic and has advised anyone to keep occupied, while also sharing with her audience some of the things she’s done to keep busy such as reading books, although she hasn’t given any specifics.

That is also evident from pictures of her dressed as Harley Quinn or Velma Dinkley from Scooby Doo and it doesn’t seem like those were pictures from Halloween either, so it’s unclear what event she attended at the time.
