Yo future youngins!

This is a student writing a letter to you from 2019, class of 2021. I just wanted to let you know that the earth is kind of getting pretty polluted and I was wondering if you could help out cleaning it. I don’t know what the past generations was thinking, but they were in denial about the whole global warming thing. I also thought nothing could ever possibly happen to us, but things like sea level rise and ice cap melts started and I’m worried. So actions like not wasting water and using less gas would significantly help if we all cooperate. I wouldn’t have too many children either because the population is about 7.5 billion and it’s pretty crowded on here. Our earth could only do so much and we have to treat it right. I hope you understand, thanks.

On a different topic I got some advice for you. Remember to never give up on something. I wouldn’t procrastinate because you will regret it a bunch. If you play video games or watch youtube videos I wouldn’t spend to much time on that. It’s fun and all, but now that I look back in hindsight I would have rather played outside and hang out with my friends. Your body will feel tired and unmotivated if you stay indoors all the time. Eat healthy because you wouldn’t want to feel like turds. Make some friends and use your youth to the best of your ability because it only last a couple of years.
