Weekend at Devil’s Lake

This past Friday was my birthday, and I chose to spend the weekend with Outdoor Pursuit at Devil’s Lake State Park in Wisconsin. It was a really great time. I had the chance to meet some new, cool people, hang out with friends, share some laughs, practice yoga in the park, go rock climbing, hiking, swimming, and camping.

It was a well rounded and grounding trip. I spent the Thursday prior to leaving debating whether or not I should go along. I became very stressed about all the work I have left to do before the end of the semester. In the end, I chose to go along because I realized I would have plenty of time to complete what I needed to when we returned.

I think this weekend away was exactly what I needed. The weekend served as a reminder to me of the little things that matter to me, the appreciation I have for nature and life, and the big picture of all things. I know this refreshed mindset will carry me through these final, busy two weeks of the Spring semester.
