100 Truths Tag

100 Truths Tag

I found this tag on Sarah Withers' blog, who got it from Lala's Book Reviews. I couldn't resist giving it a try myself...

1 – What’s your name? 

Jessica Claire Powell.

2 – Any nicknames or aliases? 

Everybody just calls me Jess. Online I mostly use my blog name, babiafi, as profile names because I'm unoriginal and lazy. I tend to change my fandom pseud every two or three years.

4 – Your star sign?

Leo. Hear me roar.

5 – How old are you? 


6 – Any children? 

Marianna, my baby who is somehow almost six already!

7 – Any pets? 

Kind of. My mum and dad have a dog called Molly who we consider ourselves part time owners of.

No tattoos and just my earlobes are pierced now, the others (about 7 others in my ears and my right eyebrow) have all closed up.

When my depression is under control, quite a few things. When my medication isn't doing it's thing, not so much...
