Is it possible not to use the pronoun "I" when it occurs very often? For example, there are sentences:

I will have breakfast now. Then I will go for a walk. Then I will go to sleep.

Is it possible to write/speak like this:

I will have breakfast now. Then _ will go for a walk. Then _ will go to sleep.

That is, it is clear that this is about me and I don’t want to use the pronoun "I" too often, because in my language it is not modest and testifies to egocentricity. What about English?

    No, but you can say "I will have breakfast, then go for a walk, then go to sleep." Not because repeating 'I' is immodest, just to avoid repeating the same form of words. – Kate Bunting May 29 at 11:08
  • @Kate Bunting Thank you very much! It is interesting. – alexrnov May 29 at 11:20
