College student Tara Monroe is just a Barbie girl, living in a Barbie world.

The 20-year-old caught the Internet’s attention when she was spotted around the Texas State campus in San Marcos, Texas, in a hot pink Barbie toy car after her real car was taken away from her.

Monroe gets an A plus for creativity.
According to the San Antonio Express-News, Monroe was left with only a bike to get around after her license was suspended following a DWI arrest.
But the college junior was not about to bike her way around campus.
“Riding a bike around campus sucks,” Monroe told the San Antonio Express-News. “Like really sucks.”
Truer words have never been spoken.
So instead of biking, Monroe bought the pink Barbie Jeep on Craigslist for $60 and became an Internet legend.
She charges it with a 12-volt battery and travels about five miles per hour through campus.
“Basically, it was the best decision I’ve made in college yet,” Monroe said.
