I originally thought this plant was a pothos, but after finding out from you guys and gals yesterday that I had likely misidentified another of my houseplants, I thought I'd check. I would now maybe suspect that the way these stems grow indicate that it's not a pothos? Let me know what you think!

That is indeed a Pothos. AKA 'Golden Pothos.'

Gotcha okay thanks! I thought maybe since each leaf was on it's own stem that it might not be a pothos. But maybe it's just a very young plant?

Looks like it (younger). That's how they're propagated, through stem cuttings. If you dig around enough (spread the leaves out), you can usually find where the stem was cut (and usually the original leaf) and a new vine which has formed from it.

Yes, that looks like the juvenile form of Pothos (Epipremnum aureum) Like the Monstera deliciosa, as Epipremnum aureum matures and grows higher into the tree, leaves form splits.
