The Responsibility of Sexuality and Sexual Intercourse
I think, from reading those pages, and from my personal opinion that sexual intercourse is appropriate when two people love each other, and have know each other very well, for many years. Also, it is appropriate when you're a married couple and want to have kids together, and spend the rest of your life with that one another. I think sexual intercourse is inappropriate when you don’t know the person well, just think they're hot by their looks, how they act, etc. . I think this because, if you don’t know them that well or not at all and decide that you want to have sexual intercourse (sex), and you just like them by looks and don’t really get to know them. That is inappropriate. This is also inappropriate because, if you get the woman, or yourself pregnant, and don’t want to have the child, you have to make a very tough decision about the child. Like giving birth to it and raising it, give up for adoption, or on the worse case even abort the child or take birth control pills. Abortion is the act of kill the baby when it is still in the mother, and then getting it removed from their body. Also, if you don’t know if there failing in school or have no money or job, then they may just be using you for your money etc. .
Some actions to put forth and act on when you meet a pretty girl, or handsome man, is maybe you could get to know them over a good amount of time, see how they act around other people, their parents or even yours/his/her friends. You’ll especially need to get to know them because that is a unwritten rule about getting to date or marry someone you love, like or want to have intercourse with. I think this because after reading those pages, and a little common sense, it’s hard to have a long lasting relationship when you don’t know the person. Also, you’ll see how they will act around other people, than just you, like their parents for example. If they act different around their parents (rude, loud, arguing, etc.), then that is not a relationship you would like to have. If they act a little different (more polite, kind, reasonable), then you might want to get to know them more and think about a long term relationship. If they also act different around your friends in bad way, then that could be a problem.
What question'S' you want to ask somebody, that you are trying to get to know, if you wanted to get into a long term relationship?
James just moved from B.C. to a school in Ontario. As a grade 8 student, moving half way through a school year, he's having a hard time adjusting to all this change. He feels the reasons for his move are private, and he's not comfortable discussing them with anyone, but people keep asking about it. He feels like after the first two weeks in his new class he doesn't want to be friends with anyone. His teacher, along with the work being assigned, seems so different from what he was doing out west. James is becoming very stressed out. Just recently, he verbally abused his bus driver on his way to school and was given a suspension.
I think some of the issues in this story are that James is worried about this big move in the middle of the school year, he has no friends that live near him, all the kids at school bother him and he got a suspension, soon after he got there. A couple things James could do to help is, talk to a social worker, ask his parents if he can tell the students in his class about the move and be more open to his classmates by actually meeting and talking to them. I think that talking to a social worker could help because, he could explain to them why he is so mad, angry or sad and they won´t tell anyone, also asking his parents if he could tell his classmates about the move could help by the students not bothering him anymore so that he is not bothered anymore. Also, him opening up to the students could help him make new friends that could help in the long run. In this story about James and his mental health issue, why do you think he lashed out at this bus driver? Did the bus driver do something he should not have done? What do you think the bus driver did to make James freak out?
Hi Ericka! I have been thinking about a question, and I wan you to answer the question that I have been working on! When Joseph and Jack are shoveling snow, why do you think Joseph was so happy when they were have a snow fight?
In the movie Orbiting Jupiter, we have been choosing songs for a movie soundtrack, I would choose a happy, kind of exciting song for when Joseph and Madeline meet because it was a very exciting moment for both of them. A song I would choose would be is the song Happy! Happy is a song that explains the definition of happy and Joseph is very happy when he is around Maddy!
Also, another song I would choose for a moment in the movie Orbiting Jupiter would be when Joseph would finds out that Maddy has past away is Say Something. Because it is a very sad song which suits that moment Perfectly because Joseph really liked Maddy (because he had a kid with her at 13) and once he found out she past away, he was so sad.
These are the song’s I would choose for my movie soundtrack!
Happy by Pharrell Williams
Say Something by A Great Big World
If I was making a movie of Orbiting Jupiter and I got to decide who the cast was this is what it would look like! For Jack’s parents, I would have the dad as Will Ferrell, I would choose Will Ferrell because he is my stepmoms and my owns very favorite actor. He also plays a very good role as a father in the movie, Daddy’s Home. In the movie Daddy's Home he battles Mark Wahlberg to be the true father to the kids! Of course Will Ferrell wins because in the movie she doesn't like Mark. So she automatically chooses Will over Mark. In Orbiting Jupiter the Dad is loyal, respectful, protective of his kids and hardworking which Will Ferrell nails those roles in the movie Daddy's Home! He is loyal to his wife in the movie, respectful to his kids, wife, workers at work and even his rival (Until near the end of the movie) Mark Wahlberg, protective of his kids so they don't fall into there real Dad and remembering who has been there Dad there whole life and not just breaking his trust by going to Mark as there Dad. He is also hardworking at his Panda radio station job with his relaxing jazz music... He works hard at his job, doesn't matter anyways! This is why I choose Will Ferrell as the father in the movie cast!
For his mom I would have Drew Barrymore, because in the book the mother is very concerned for her family, and in the movie Blended she plays the role of a mother and she has to boys that are crazy, and she is very scared they're going to end up killing themselves one day. She also plays a very nervous girl in the movie scream when she pacing around her house trying to find the man who killed her boyfriend, and found out that it was a person from her school that liked her friend and soon after that, she found herself dead from the man in the mask! So that is my choice of the mother.
For Jack since he is very nervous in the book I would have Cameron Boyce since he is a very funny character in the movie grown ups as he plays Adam Sandler’s son in the movie. In the second movie of Grown Ups, he plays kind of a funny role, trying to try out for the football team at his school, but ends up breaking his leg in the process because of his Dad (Adam Sandler) lands on him when he is trying to block a field goal from his son. He broke his leg by tripping over a sprinkler head that is sticking out of the ground. That is my reasoning for him playing Jack. In the book it says that Jack is respectful, caring, innocent and friendly. In the movie Grown Ups 2, Cameron Boyce is respectful to his family and friends and doesn't disobey there trust. He is caring of his friends and family, he cares for his brother when he is trying to get his girlfriend because he wanted his brother to be happy. He is also innocent when he is getting bullied by the kid on the bus, he doesn't defend him self anyway and he just is kind of scared. He is also very friendly to any one he meets, but if they are mean to him, then he treats them with the same respect. This is why I would choose Cameron Boyce as Jack in my movie cast!
Since Joseph is kinda a scary figure as some would put it, my actor that would play as Joseph is Nolan Gould. Nolan Gould plays a very good role in the popular T.V series Modern Family! He is the son in the T.V show who is kind of stupid in the show but in real life I bet he is pretty smart. He also is kind of a joker in the show but it's probably one of my favorite shows of all time, and he is probably my favorite character in the whole show! Nolan Gould is a great choice since is a very tall kid, he would be the perfect actor to take his spot in Orbiting Jupiter.
As an audience to Orbiting Jupiter how do you think Joseph's charecter has changed from Ch.1 to Ch.2?
I think Joseph has changed quite a bit through out the first and second chapter, because he is getting a lot more involved in school which helps his reputation with the students and teachers around him. I think Joseph especially likes the gym teacher because they had lots of fun racing each other up and down the ropes. Mr. Canton (the vice principal) keeps getting Joseph in trouble so that Joseph keeps having to do Mr. Canton's work. This is rude because even though Joseph is different doesn't mean that you treat him any differently. In the middle of the chapter when Joseph and Jack were walking home, Joseph headed down to the river and started to walk on the thin ice. Jack was trying to get Joseph of the ice, but it wasn't working. I think Joseph was walking out on the ice because he was upset that those kids are picking on him because who he used to be. So Joseph went onto the ice because the needed somewhere to go but he didn't now that the ice was thin till Jack mentioned, but Joseph was already out there. How do you think Joseph's characteristics have changed so far?
Throught the first chapter some labels I have picked up on are loser, baby daddy (Which means he is a really young father), rude, etc.. I found when he was called loser is when he got of the bus, the driver said some mean things and people when they look at him since it looks like hes trying to look cool, they think he is a loser. He is a baby daddy because he is my age, in grade 8 and already has a child. Also people think he is rude because, he doesnt usally talk to people when they talk to him and that is rude.
