What did i just get me self into."' (Shakespear ACT 3, Scene 5). Juliet secretly married Romeo who is of the opposing family and loves him very much. She is being forced to marry Paris and she just can't find away around it, so she agree's. Inside her mind she is very mad and sad and is constantly crying because Romeo is being torn away from her. She eventually thinks up a plan to get out of the sticky situation by faking her own death, which leads to something bigger and ends up upsetting the family's even more. But, in the end she gets what she wants by dying next to romeo and and not paris

Juliet is getting ready to carry out the Friar's plan when a dirty little thought comes into her mind, "What if it be poison, which the Friar substly hath ministerd to have me killed."

She is debating on if she should take it and get back to her love Romeo by making her look dead so Romeo can get her in the Capulet tomb when she wakes and run off with him to Mantua or be sent into the deep dungeons of death.

Juliet is mad at her father and that her name is the only thing keeping her away from Romeo and it's eating up with saddness because all she can think about is Romeo.
