I was 16 and on my Christmas list I had written: a necklace, earrings and the Mulan soundtrack. (Yes, I was awkward at 16.) Here is what I got: A CD player, the Mulan soundtrack and a Barbie. My mom told me it would be my last Barbie. My eye roll was so huge, it was almost audible. And despite the fact that I got a soap making kit when I was 15, that Barbie is the worst present I have ever recieved.
