6:30AM

  1. Got dressed quietly
  2. Tiptoed slowly
  3. Carried my shoes in my hands until I was outside
  4. Shut the door behind me at just the right speed so it wouldn't creek
  5. Let a little more weight in my step once I was ten feet from the entrance
  6. Picked up my pace once I was fifteen feet from the entrance
  7. Smiled a great smile of victory once I was twenty feet from the entrance
  8. Felt nostalgic for all the times I similarly snuck out of my parents house as a teenager
  9. Only, instead of sneaking out to do drugs with my friends
  10. I was sneaking out to get Starbucks so I could proceed my day as a functional adult
  11. It was still exhilarating.
