Am I on bond just until my first court appearance or until my final court date? I'd like to leave the state for a day

Unfortunately you are still on bond and must comply with all the conditions. You deserve credit for reading your bond sheet and being careful to comply. You will only be off bond when your deferred prosecution ends and your case is dismissed. This will not happen until your final court appearance. The good news is that most judges in a case like this would allow you to travel outside the state. You could hire an attorney or go yourself to advance the case and ask the judge for permission to travel. It would obviously be easier with an attorney, depending on your financial situation. If you cannot afford an attorney, you may be able to do this on your own.
You cannot leave the state without permission. File a motion for leave to travel. It will probably be granted. Your bond is in place until the completion of your deferred action or other disposition of your case.
