I’ve decided to go out tonight. I pace around, getting ready. I
wash my face and comb my hair as I look at my reflection in the
mirror. I put on a black long-sleeved shirt and jeans. Every time,
before I go out, I get nervous, but I push through because once
I'm actually out in the world having fun, the nervousness goes
away. I put on my jacket and shoes, then head downstairs. I
leave all the lights on in the house and exit out the back, through
the kitchen, before walking across the backyard to the sidewalk.
The cold air feels good on my face. Already, I'm starting to relax.
