Back to Toronto

I’ve just come back from sunny Hawaii yesterday. A snowstorm hit Toronto today.

The weather is really bad. But Daniel told me there’s a paycheck for me and I need to sign the contract for my parttime webmaster job. So I decided to go downtown after all.

When I met up with Daniel and told him I need a long vacation this summer. He decided not to sign the contract with me and didn’t even give me the paycheck for my previous work. I don’t care. They don’t pay me well anyway.
