About an hour and a half ago, my uncle called with some bad news.... My cousin, Joe, passed away about two days ago from a heart attack.... The police found his body earlier tonight. It only really started sinking in when I started letting people know why I might be going silent for a few days....

I deal with grief by doing a lot of crying. Most of the time, it's in private, but sometimes, it's around people. In this case, since The Sib and the parents are also grieving, I've had to isolate myself from them. I just need time to myself so I can focus and cope. I will check facebook and the like, I prolly won't be responding 'till I work through the emotions. I internalize a lot, and with emotions like grief, I have to work them through before I can move on.

In time, the pain and shock will fade, but for now, I'm taking things as they come. One by one, day by day... that's all I can do right now.

Yes, it has been quite some time since I last posted. I had a minor bout of insanity, and have been busy helping get the house ready for the visit by the Sib and the Sib's girlfriend. Add into that attempting to work on two big cosplays (One of which I have yet to get the materials for, due to lack of big boxes) for SavCon, and general family drama..... Yeah.... Big bundle of stress and insanity. Plus, I really didn't feel like I had anything terribly profound to say on here.... I also happen to have the Steampunk Masquerade at the end of the month, so I'm working on getting an outfit and mask ready for that....
