Lara would like to know:

Please list the significant jobs have you had and for what lengths of time?
I’ve only worked in one significant job since I returned from overseas. I’m currently working for a childrens entertainment network in production department. I was recently promoted actually, which means I now produce and write my own stuff! I’ve been there just under a year and absolutely love everything about it.

How many subcultures have you been in and for what periods of time?
– Surfing crowd for about 6 months which then led to..
– Hippie sort of crowd that I’m still in, but don’t dress the same. I still listen to the same music
– then became a bit of a stoner for while
– the biggest and longest sub-culture I’ve been apart of is that wacky travler group. Those who just wander around the globe for a while. That was the best one, lasted almost a year. I’m back in the daily grind now though.

How many partners have you had and how long did the relationships last?
I was with a guy during high-school for 2 1/2 years and shortly after we broke I got into another 3 1/2 year relationship. I spent a year single and have recently met someone who is pretty great, but not quite sure where it is going.

How many times have you been in hospital and for what lengths of time?
I have only been into hospital once, for a couple of days. I was 12 years old and decided to have my ears pinned back because they stuck out too much and I was badly bullied. But recently I spent weeks in the hospital, not for myself though. My brother had brain cancer and so I spent weeks with him there while he had surgery and treatment. Then a few weeks after that, the guy I am with had a brain injury and so I also spent an entire week with him while he was in hospital recovering from really bad head injury. Although I haven’t been in hospital much for myself, I’ve certainly spent a lot of time there in the past 4 months because of two very important males in my life.
