What kind of a person makes fun of Ted talks?! Is no body of knowledge or expertise agreed upon? Leading with a story of early professional failure, we are introduced to Lisa. She likes maps, she dances to the song Work Bitch, she tells us that she is not easy going as a person. She tells us more about her likes including different types of books. She is visited by clouds. She plays with a sensory ball for babies and enjoys herself. This work was shot on an iPhone.
