In the catholic faith sexual intercourse can be a life giving miracle but sexual intercourse is both appropriate and inappropriate. Sexual intercourse is appropriate when two people are married and want to bring a child into the world for them to love and care for and to worship God. Sexual intercourse is appropriate when two people love each other and have a full commitment to each other and want the same things in life as one another. Sexual intercourse is inappropriate when you are unwed and have no commitment to each other, if you see no future with that person or if you both want different things out of life sexual intercourse is inappropriate.
People everyday deal with the challenges of the responsibility of sexuality and sexual intercourse. Growing up there will always be people who don't believe in the same things you do but you should always listen to what you believe and follow your faith.
If two people love each other and believe in the same things, why is waiting for marriage so important?
We are currently reading speechless in our class. For one of our tasks we had to make a anti bulling poster using pixton. In my poster its all about a girl who was getting picked on but then finally had enough courage to stand up for herself. In the book speechless Jelly had to make an anti bullying poster to and in his poster it said speak up, speak out so I decided to us that too.
To be proactive it means you have to take more than just initiative and to be more responsible. Being proactive means that when you are in a bad situation don't wait to respond to the problem until after the problem is over you need to control the situation while its happening. Being proactive is making good choices based on principles and values and not on our moods. People who are proactive know when to stay away from a problem, and also know when to not be a victims and know when to not blame others instead of themselves.
How can being proactive impact our grade 8 life?
Being proactive can really impact our grade 8 life in a lot of ways, for one when you are in a bad situation you need to respond to your problems and deal with them before the problem is done and over with. Being proactive can help you get control of a situation while its going on, this could impact grade 8 lives because stopping a problem before its done and over with is a good life skill to have.
Lastly being proactive can impact grade 8 lives by teaching us to do more than just take initiative you need to be more responsible.
Why do you think it is important to be proactive in your life?
1. After reading this short story we have to critically think about mental health. Some of the main issues in this story relating
to mental health are the fact that everyone kept asking James why he moved schools and he didn't want to tell them. The reason
that this is an issues is because the reason he moved schools is very private and he doesn't want everyone knowing because he could be embarrassed of whatever he doesn't want everyone to know . He probably doesn't want to known as someone hes not and the reason why he moved schools maybe is something hes not proud of or doesn't want to be remembered by. Another issues from this story is how James
verbally abused his bus driver. The reason this is an issues is because the stress of all this change hes going through and all the other
kids wanting to know why he changed but he doesn't want to tell them all is building stress in James and then he just flipped out on his bus driver. That's not good because of two things one it's rude and James can get in a lot of trouble and in this case he did he got a
suspension. Two if he gets more and more stressed out this could happen again and again and he could keep getting into trouble.
example of what James could do to help with his mental health is he could tell his parents and they could talk to him them selves or if it's that bad they could take him to therapy and James could talk to a professional who knows what their doing.

Can mental illness be prevented?
For my orbiting Jupiter letter I decided to write to Jack as Joseph to say thank you for everything he has done for him.
Hey Jackie I'm writing you this letter in Mister Canton’s office instead of going to gym because I was supposedly disrupting the class in math but you know Mister Canton so I probably did nothing, I have to do some stupid project in english were I write some letter to someone to open in 10 years and guess what I picked you Jackie.
So I guess in 10 years I hope me and you are still working on the farm and I'm still milking Rosie with the sound of Quintus Sertorius in the background screaming for food and us completely ignoring him. I guess since I'm writing you this letter I should say thank you for everything you've done for me Jack but I don't say thank you very much so don't get used to it.
I guess I’m thankful for all the times you walked to school with me in the freezing cold just because I hated riding the bus and the people on it especially Mister Haskell. Thanks for always having my back even when I didn't need you or when you got yourself into trouble just to try and come to my rescue, but what I'm most thankful for is that you helped me find Jupiter when everyone else thought I could never find her. Most importantly in 10 years I hope I'm still trying my best to find Jupiter and raise her and I know you will help me, won’t you Jackie?
Trust me Jack the next 10 years are going to be great as long as you learn to throw better at the old first congregational and I'll even teach you how to skate like me because I have your back and you have mine.
Sincerely: The one that has your back, Joseph
Hello Amilia i wrote you this question because i really would like to know what you think and i cant wait to answer yours.
Why do you think Joseph ran away to find Jupiter all on his own even though Jack's parents agreed to help Joseph find her. Use your own personal experience and the book to answer this question.
If I were to create a soundtrack for Orbiting Jupiter I would chose the songs Lost Boy , All I Want For Christmas Is You and A Thousand Years.
My first song is Lost Boy the reason I would chose Lost Boy as one of the songs in my soundtrack is because I think it relates to Joseph's life and the struggles he has had to go through to get where he is now. “There was a time when I was alone nowhere to go and no place to call home my only friend was the man in the moon and even sometimes he would go away, too,” That is one of the lyrics in the song Lost Boy and it's just like in the book Orbiting Jupiter, Joseph was alone getting put into different homes than juvie and his only friend was Maddie and he could never see her on the weekends but then one day she just went away. This song is all about a boy who is lost with no family and no friends and nowhere to go but with the help of peter pan and some magic he finds his way to never land where he is save and found a new family. Joseph is that lost boy with nowhere to go but with the help of a few people he found his way to his new safe home with a great new family. “Then one night, as I closed my eyes I saw a shadow flying high He came to me with the sweetest smile Told me he wanted to talk for awhile He said, Peter Pan, that's what they call me I promise that you'll never be lonely, and ever since that day,” That is another lyrics from the song that makes me think about the book Orbiting Jupiter because one night or day a very nice lady came and told Joseph he was going to a new home and he should never be lonely again because his new family will love him and care for him and ever since he got to his new family his life is getting better day by day. “ Together we will fly away in a cloud of green To your beautiful destiny As we soared above the town that never loved me I realized I finally had a family”. This lyric is just like in the book because Joseph left the house with his dad that never really loved him and juvie and finally found a great home with a family that really does love him. Those are the main reasons I would chose the song Lost Boy for my soundtrack.
The next song I would pick for my soundtrack is All I Want For Christmas Is You. I would pick this song because it's a great representation of the part of the book where it's Christmas and Joseph's wants nothing more than to just find Jupiter. “I don't want a lot for Christmas There is just one thing I need I don't care about the presents Underneath the Christmas tree I just want you for my own More than you could ever know Make my wish come true oh All I want for Christmas is you” That is one of the lyrics in the song All I Want For Christmas Is You, those lyrics remind me of Joseph because Joseph does not want anything but to find Jupiter for Christmas, he doesn't care about the presents he just cares about Jupiter. “I just want you for my own More than you could ever know” is another lyric in the song that reminds me of Joseph because Joseph wants to find Jupiter very bad and wants her for his own not some other people who have adopted her. Those are the reasons why I think that song is a great choice for my soundtrack.
The final song I would chose for my soundtrack is A Thousand Years, This song is a song about love and how sometimes love is hard just like it is in Orbiting Jupiter. “ I have died everyday waiting for you darling, don't be afraid. I have loved you for a thousand years I'll love you for a thousand more”, This lyric is just like when Maddie dies Joseph died everyday waiting for her but she will never come back, he loved her always and will till the end of time. “ Heart beats fast” is what I think is what always happened when he saw Maddie or what could happen when he sees Jupiter. “ And all along I believed I would find you” is what I think the best lyric is because Joseph knows he will find Jupiter he has known it all along. Therefore I think this song would be a great choice for my soundtrack.
Orbiting Jupiter movie cast.
For the role of Joseph i would cast Daren Kagasoff who played the role of Ricky underwood in the show “The secret life of the american teenager”, in the show the secret life of the american teenagers Ricky was known as the bad boy just like Joseph. Daren Kagasoff “Ricky underwood” in my mind is almost a perfect match to play Joseph in his last show “the secret life of the american teenager” he and his girlfriend Amy Juergens had a baby at age 15 just like Joseph and Maddie did. Ricky wanted nothing more than to be involved in his son’s (John) life, Joseph was the same he wanted nothing more than to find his daughter (Jupiter) and be involved in her life. Ricky Underwoodwas an abused child and ended up in a foster home which changed his life for the better, We have no idea what happened to Joseph’s parents but we do know he also ended up in a foster home with great parents which is changing his life for the better. Ricky being an abused child he had trust problems which lead to him doing bad things and he ended up in juvie. Joseph also ended up in juvie for attempting to kill a teacher. Although Daren Kagasoff is almost 30 he has recently played the role of a 15 year old boy in high school really well and i definitely think he could do it again. Daren has dark brown eyes and black hair and so does Joseph. Therefor i think Daren Kagasoff would be a great choice for the role of Joseph.
Lastly for the role of Their dad i would cast Bob Saget who played the role of Danny Tanner in the show full house and the role of the dad in the movie father and scout. Bob Saget played in many different movies as the role of the “dad” and was a great dad in most of them. In the show full house there were many cases where his three daughter “D.J Tanner, Michelle Tanner and Stephanie Tanner” got themselves into trouble sometimes more than others and Danny had to find different ways to deal with them without getting to mad. In the book Orbiting Jupiter Jack and Joseph’s father had to find a way not to get to mad at them when they went out onto the ice and almost fell in. Danny was a very strict dad just like Jack and Joseph’s father. Bob Saget is very tall and has dark brown eyes and i imagine Jack and Joseph’s dad very tall and with dark brown eyes. Therefor i think Bob Saget should definitely be casted for the role of the dad.
As an audience member to orbiting Jupiter, how do you think Joseph's character has changed from ch1 to ch2?
As an audience member to the book orbiting Jupiter i think Joseph changed quite a bit. In the first chapter Joseph never talked to anyone and was very distance at school, i think that was because Joseph was still the "new kid" in town and was just starting to get used to his new life. In the second chapter Joseph started to talk more and got more involved in school activity's. For example Joseph started to talk to Jack and his new family more, I think he did that because he know they think more of him than just the 14 year old boy who has a kid. Mr. D'unley Josephs math teacher each day gave him lots of math questions to answer and each day Joseph did just that i think that if Mr. D'unley would have asked Joseph those questions in the first chapter he would have not answered them.
In your opinion how do you think Joseph has changed?
