Justin Bieber dyed his hair blonde. Maybe Harry dyed his dog's hair black. Quit jumping to conclusions!!

Sure that may be 10 years from now, however now is the time to learn everything that you can about how it all works, take notes learn hard and when get tired of learning, "LEARN HARDER"....
yes indeed, buy a hardbound diary for your work experience you can jot down your daily job tasks, experiences ,what you learn etc.
you'll find those hard bound books to be very useful over the years
good luck

Grats to you on finding a contractor to take you on, I know you've been looking a while and GTA is insanely competitive. I wouldn't dream of leaving until at least finishing first year school. Finding future jobs as a registered 2nd-4th year apprentice won't be too hard if needed but getting a starter job is tough.

The only advice I would give is to not get too comfortable where you are. If you're not learning something new move on to a bigger/different company. Get out of your comfort zone and learn as much as you can while your young.

Good Luck
