Ebben Wiley's back in the States?! Say what?!

Hello faithful readers...

Sorry I did such a terrible job of blogging while in Burkina. I am now back in the States, and will be returning to my old blog

Peace Corps was amazing, and with out a doubt, will remain one of the most more memorable experiences of my life!

I grew much more than I ever expected. It's so odd... I was in West Africa for two and a half years, but if honestly feels like I just left the States. (I went to Paris for a week and went on a two week cruise from England to the Canary Islands; aside from that, I was in Burkina Faso.)

I expected things to be so different upon my return to home...I guess I expected too much. Because so little has changed (for the most part in terms of how America is) it's very hard to reconcile that I was actually gone for two and half years. THAT alone makes it even harder when it comes to where my friends are in their lives.

Gone are the days of dropping everything on a whim to hit the mall, or bar. Hello responsibility!

That said, I have some awesome stories/ things to share with you all. I am working on getting photos of all the fun things I bought in Burkina, and creating a post on my main blog.

I am also in the process of applying for a really cool grant that I will link everyone to in the next couple of days. I will need you to like my post on the sponsor's site for me to win.

I promise to get that post up before Monday morning!

Thanks so much for keeping up with me while I was in Burkina, and PLEASE continue reading on my main blog!

Happy Holidays!

Ebben Wiley
