Both the audience and Friar Lawrence are surprised by this, as only twenty four hours earlier Romeo was in love with Rosaline and depressed that she did not love him back. According to the TED Talk: “Insight into the Teenage Brain,” the area of the brain that anticipates major consequences is still developing in teenagers (Galvan). Therefore, Romeo and Juliet seem to rush into marriage because of their inability to think about any possible negative outcomes.

One of the most destructive secrets in the novel was Rochester’s secret that he kept away from Jane over a long period of time. The secret of his mad first wife Bertha that he kept hidden away in the third floor. It turned out the sounds I heard coming from the attic weren't the screams of Mr Rochester's mad wife Bertha. It wasn't the wife who burned to death in the fire that destroyed Thornfield Hall and blinded my future husband when he tried to save her. After we'd first got engaged, he'd had to admit that he was already married, and we'd broken off our engagement.
Not only is it gruelling, the pace is scorching, and, for most candidates, the overriding feeling during the first semester is one of drowning, arms flailing et al. Anyone who’s taken the program will tell you that it’s a very visceral experience, both the highs and the lows, and there’s really very little that can prepare you for it. ‘Immersive’ is perhaps the best way to describe this two-year course. Apart from classroom learning, there is so much else you can do towards achieving self-discovery, and social and academic growth, that you always have to keep your eye on the ball lest you lose sight of your goals. We don’t mean to scare you; we are simply validating your feelings of vulnerability.

Talking to someone for two months when I have never seen him before is hard, but today was the day. I did not know how it was going to go, but I just had a feeling when I set my eyes on him that it was a day I was going to never forget. The night before, I laid in bed imagining how I expected it to go. Obviously, nothing went the way it imagined.
