Chapter 7-9 orbiting Jupiter open response was to write a letter as Joseph to other characters. I wrote three letters and here they are below
My name is Joseph, your biological father. I am writing to you because as a father I want to make sure that you are ok and well with your foster parents. I want to tell that if I were you I would not visit your grandpa because he is acting crazy and he would probably give you no respect. I know you live in Brunswick but I live in a farmhouse. I am sorry that I am not able to see for some terrible reason. I hope you enjoy living with your foster family and I think you look beautiful just by looking at a picture of you. I promise that I will keep day to day with you.
I just want to tell you that I think you are not my favorite teacher. Why, well why I don’t like you is because I think you hate me as well. Next time you talk to me which is after christmas holiday, I want you to give respect to me for the rest of the time I am at Easton Middle School. If you do as I wish I will treat you the same. If you chose not to treat me with respect I will do the same which is only fair and I hope you understand my complaint.
Dear Foster Parents
I want to say that I do enjoy myself at your place, sometimes though. I just want to say that I enjoy milking Rose and that I want to keep milking rose if that is ok with you guys. I think Jackie is alright as a friend . If Jackie has my back I will have his back and I want to walk home after school from now on if that is ok with you guys,
Chapter 4-5 open response
The 4 songs that I would chose are, Endless Love by Diana Ross & Lionel Richie, Hurt by Johnny Cash, Say Something by a Great World & Christina Aguilera and lastly One by U2.
2. I chose Hurt by Johnny Cash for the parts when Joseph tells his painful flashback and the part when Joseph gets in a fight in the lockers because the song is all about pain, anger and fear. Joseph has suffered a lot of pain, anger and fear and hurt by Johnny Cash was the song that reminded me of Joseph’s pain, anger and fear. In the song it says “I hurt myself today” reminds me as the part when Joseph kept trying to escape the prisons and the fight in the lockers.
3. I chose Say Something by a Great World & Christina Aguilera for the part when Joseph and Jack were skating on the ice because the song tune is what I picture as for Joseph skating and I think he is probably thinking of Madilyn and Jupiter. In the song it says “I will stumble and fall” reminds me of when Joseph fell on the ice. In the song it also say “i’m sorry I couldn’t get to you” reminds me of when Joseph is trying to see Madlyn and Jupiter.
4. I chose One by U2 for the main theme because the chorus stands out to me because it says “one love one life when it's one need one love”. To me the chorus lyrics stand out to Joseph because he only has one love and that is Madilyn and the one life is himself. The song is in a sad/ anger tune and Joseph feels both sad and anger most of the time.
