Imagine waking up every morning perched off of a cliff, with turquoise clear waters clashing against the jagged-amber rock below and ivory yachts sprinkled about the sea. Your peaceful neighbors would be nothing but cacti and fruit trees. A long driveway shaded by strings of ivy leads to a convenient walking path to the nearby sleepy Spanish town and beach. OKAY. It sounds like a billionaire's paradise. But when you're Barbie, your imagination knows no bounds! My life goal? To practically become Barbie. I'll have the sleek, modern house with a pool and enough guest rooms for all the friends I'd like to invite for a weekend getaway. But MOST importantly, I want the job, the salary, the education, the success, and for it to all be MINE and earned from my hard work. Once my fusion breakthrough as a nuclear engineer makes me millions, I'll head to the little island of Mallorca, Spain, and build my very own Mojo Dojo Casa House. Oh... It'll be nothing. Just a minimalistic mega mansion with a stunningly impractical design that only a genius like myself could come up with. Picture this: the exterior will resemble a giant Rubik's Cube, changing colors every hour just to keep the guests on their toes. The front yard will boast a fully functional roller coaster instead of a driveway, ensuring every visitor has an exhilarating arrival experience. And traditional doors? Forget about them! We'll have secret passages disguised as bookshelves, paintings, and even a hidden slide to get from the first to the second floor. Inside, every room will embrace its own absurd theme. A gravity-defying room with ceilings and floors covered in mirrors to confuse anyone who dares to enter. The kitchen will be equipped with state-of-the-art appliances, including a talking fridge that offers sarcastic commentary on your food choices. Bathrooms will have automated toilets with mood sensor technology, so they'll only flush when they feel appreciated. Now, let's not overlook the backyard. An Olympic-sized swimming pool filled with jelly instead of water, providing a deliciously messy and adventurous experience for swimmers. And, to top it all off, a flock of flamingos will roam the grounds, dressed in formal attire, hosting tea parties for anyone who cares to join. Of course, practicality isn't entirely forgotten. My Barbie dream house will house a nuclear fusion reactor deep within the ground, cheaply powering not only my home but also the entire island and the world! And yes, it will effortlessly solve homelessness, hunger, cancer, and restore our natural state of ideal happiness and inclusion. But hey, that's no big deal. Geothermal heating and cooling will be installed, along with an underground hydroponic farm to feed my friends, my army of kittens, and my fellow engineers. So yes, this Barbie is not just a pretty face but also a STEMINIST and a future nuclear engineer—an icon to young minds and an advocate for those with learning disabilities like myself. Oh, did I mention that my degree from MIT will be prestigiously displayed underneath a heroic painting of me riding a stallion into Barbieland? Oops, how could I forget! Feel the Kenergy, my friends!
