Tough to lose your dad at any age - my condolences young man.
You have the ruck as a reminder of your dad and his legacy to you.
Try and keep it up maintenance wise, and drive it with due respect to your father as a reminder of his time on this earth with you.
18 is a hell of a time to have to suddenly grow up - BUT - you can fight and die for your country at 18 (even if you can't legally drink alcohol, that sucks - its 18 here).
18 - 25 ish is sort of the time to be young care free and at times a little irresponsible - to travel and get those sorts of things out of your system before you settle down to raise a family.
In your case you have to start a little earlier than some others is all.
Dedicate yourself to only making decisions and taking actions that your dad would have approved of.
That way you likely won't go far wrong and would have made him proud.
Also don't be too tough on yourself...aim to have your crap fully together by time your say 23...if you can.
Non of us knows when our numbers up.
Life is a sexually transmitted disease, birth is a death sentence, non of us gets out of this alive, and you can't take anything with you.
Live each day like it might be your last, and do to others as you'd be done bye.
You can do fine and your dads given you a jump start - so make the most of every opportunity.
Avoid bad company.
Be good to your mother.
Best of luck to you and may God bless you in all your endeavors.
Madness takes its toll, please have exact change handy.
