Romeo and Juliet - Act 1
Subject : Write Romeo's diary entry for this day. Include not only the events but also his secret thoughts and feelings about them.
Because it's the first time I am writing to you, I would like to talk a little about myself. My name is Romeo, and I come from the Montague family. My dad is Mr Montague and my mum Lady Montague. I am sixteen. It's not that I'm pretentious, but I have to say that I think I'm quite attractive, lively and sensitive. I live in the middle of a ferocious fight between my family and the Capulet's. This battle has started ages before I was born, and will keep on going for generations and generations. Honestly, I think that this fight is foolish, and that violence doesn't make thing different. I take the Capulet's as equal as us, and nothing will change my mind.
I feel that this day couldn't get any worst for me. See, I like this girl, Rosaline, but she doesn't love me as I do. This made me miserable for the entire day, and I had not the desire to see anyone else. I 've been thinking and came to the answer that there was no more sense of living in this world if Rosaline could never love me. The only person informed about my love for her is my cousin, Benvolio. I told him how I felt, and how I couldn't live without her, and he gave me the advice of going with him tonight at the masked party at the Capulet's mansion. Dear diary I hope my cousin is right and if not, what should I do?
