Until college it was Beans. which seems weird but literally everyone called me that. there is really no reason for it... my parents just called me that and it stuck... for 20 years. now its larneson or larney mostly. Not many people call me Laura.
02) What was your dream growing up?
I had so many... I was set on being a paleontologist at one point, and an astronaut, I also idolized Mia Hamm and thought I'd play professional soccer, then it was an actress or rock star, I also legitimately wanted to be President. haha I had big dreams i guess.
03) What talent do you wish you had?
I wish I was an amazing singer. As a guitar player and obsessive music junkie it would be really great to be able to sing really well.
04) Do you care what others think about you?
yeah... probably too much. I've gotten better as I've grown up but I'm very self-conscious about my reputation which has its pros and cons i suppose.
05) What is your current desktop picture?
Safeco Field with the Seattle skyline in the background. I took the picture at a Mariners/ Yankees game.

The Shack.... so amazing. My dad gave it to me. If you haven't read it stop reading this crap and go get it now.

biting my nails... my mom literally smacks me when i do it.
10) What's your favorite TV show?
haha the million dollar question. I'm obsessed with TV. I watch like 15 shows via DVR a week. I'm not really a casual TV watcher though, I actually schedule it into my day. If I had to choose an all-time favorite I'd say Lost... nothing can replace that show.

To watch - College football and Elite Track and Field. To play - probably flag football :)
12) Do you have a Pessimistic or Optimistic attitude?
I'm a glass half-full-kind-of-girl. I'm really optimistic... what's the point of being a downer?

YES! Love musicals. My absolute favorite is Wicked. I would give my arm to see Idina Menzel & Kristin Chenoweth together. The music is amazing.

very much so
17) What was your favorite game to play as a child?
I always loved Life and Dream Phone. Most of the games I played were ones I made up though... i played with my sisters and made the rules up as I went so that I'd always win. I was a competitive kid.

Healthy for sure. My lifestyle is way to active to deal with being unhealthy.
19) Do you think clowns are cute or scary?
Scary... always scary.
20) Favorite Movie franchise?
Easy. Pirates of the Caribbean. I'm pretty obsessed with it. I actually get defensive when people hate on Pirates. I could probably quote every line in the movies.

Music is pretty much the only thing that can make me cry. The artist most likely to make me cry is probably Alli Rogers. Most power ballads will do it too if the timing is right :)
22) What color eyes do you have?
I used to think brown... but they are more green now... i guess that's hazel then.
23) Ever been arrested?
No way. I like to think I'm more of a bad ass than i really am.

Neither. Not a huge soda...or as i say.... pop fan. If I had to choose I'd say bottle of root beer.
25) If you won $10,000 today, what would you do with it?
Go on vacation to somewhere really warm. Or get a crazy expensive new guitar. I should probably save it though... seeing as I'm in college and broke.

Starbucks... there are few places I love more than Starbucks.
