Since my dream job is to become a journalist, I would cut out all the good articles first. Then I would have fun with the word puzzles and the comics. I would also use the paper to make paper planes. In the end, I would do what any eco-friendly citizen would do - put the pile of Young Post in the recycling bin.

I would put the newspapers inside a huge bottle and bury it in the backyard of my house and plant a tree there. After 50 years, I would take the bottle out and send the contents to my old friends. In the future, newspapers might be replaced by electronic mails and become extinct. My friends could then cherish the memories of their youth.

I'll read the letters written by students in Young Post during my free time. It would be very difficult to go through all the articles although I would like to do it. After I finish reading the letters, I would cut them out and keep them in my drawer. Those articles could come in very handy when I do homework, especially liberal studies.

I like the cover of Young Post very much. It is attractive and sometimes the title 'Young Post' is specially designed to match the story. If I have an old pile of Young Post, I think I'd go through the covers and cut out all the big letters and keep them. Are they rubbish? No!

I would use an old pile of Young Post to make papier-mache. With just water, glue and pieces of newspaper, you can create anything, like a pinata for birthday parties, handmade gifts for your friends and family or even Halloween costumes. It's time to let my creativity run wild.

Newspapers contain lots of colourful pictures. I'll cut out the pictures I like and stick them on my sketch book, creating a series of breathtaking designs. I'll send the leftovers for recycling. It sounds like a great idea!

I would make full use of the newspapers before recycling them. I would read them again, although it is old news. It's still good to know what happened. Whether the news is old or new, reading can help improve my language skills.
