30 Days of Women: Danae Alexander
How old are you & where do you live?
I am 22 years old and I reside in New Orleans, LA.
What is the hardest part about being a woman in your shoes?
I would have to say being underestimated. Also, objectification at it's finest. Objectification in the sense of being viewed only as far as the naked eye can see. There is nothing more disappointing than being "that girl with the dreadlocks." I know that I am so much more than my chosen hairstyle. This goes for any and every physical appearance that I myself, or other women choose or choose not to possess. I am a good soul living in a meat suit that was chosen for me. That is simply beyond me, therefor, I can only project what has been provided to me from within myself. Recognize. Respect.
Who's been your biggest motivation for furthering your goals and living the life you want to live?
As much as I'd like to have a selfless reason to justify my sporadic actions and decision making, it really is just me, myself, & I.
What's something that's changed your viewpoint on the world, rather it be good, or traumatic?
Forcing myself to be alone. One of the best decisions I've ever made was stepping out of my comfort zone and becoming a lone vagabond. It's a beautiful feeling to be a loner and be okay with it.
Who was your first love and do you still speak?
His name is Christian Jardanowski. We do not speak any more, but when I do see him, I always treat him with respect. I think and hope it's a mutual respect.
What's something about women that inspires you/leaves you in awe?
I think it's completely amazing that women possess such strong intuition. We also have a subconscious connection between our mind/body/emotions that never gets enough recognition as it should. It's something incredible to be able to sync the 3. When you can fall in love with someone and your emotions recognize it enough to control your body and tell your uterus to drop an egg. Every woman knows this feeling/experience. It's beautiful.
What's your profession
*sorry hold on*
ok.ok. I don't exactly have a real profession. I am quite literally a drifter. It really couldn't reflect who I am any clearer.
I consider myself to be a wanderlust at heart. It can be scary at times, as I am literally the poster child for making bad decisions. Living this lifestyle is important to me though, because if I were to follow all the rules that were provided, I wouldn't have learned one of the most valuable and important things in life... And that, to me, is that no bad decision that I make or have ever made is a mistake. It is a learning experience.
