Cherry Laurel would have alternate leaves.

I wonder if it could be a type of honeysuckle shrub? (I'm only guessing.)

Is this supposed to be a house (potted) plant? Or could it be a Ligustrum?

First things first.

At Creature:

Where is this plant growing? That makes a big difference in the ID suggestions provided to you. You ought to fill in more of your gardening information, to help others here to help you.

Second:

Always note where buds are when observing the leaf arrangement on a plant. It sure appears to me that there are buds at the base of pinnately compound foliage arranged alternately along the main stem of this unknown plant. The compound foliage has oppositely arranged leaflets, with no terminal leaflet. That is probably a good positive ID feature - if one is familiar with this plant and the zone in which it grows.

I suspect that this species is from a far warmer growing zone than I'm familiar with - but the sequence of ID features ought to be followed, no matter where you are from and no matter what the plant is that you are looking at.

I agree that this appears to be a single stem plant with compound foliage. I'm not sure of an id, tho.
