River Rock

Seanie Civale ’14

When I started working at the Lodge after senior year, it was literally the day after graduation. I remember that first day, I went and was just totally disoriented, and I had just graduated, and I had no idea what I was doing with my life. At the Lodge you rotate jobs every single day, and I was told that on my first day my job would be a server, which means you don’t have to do anything until like 5:30pm, so you have the whole day free. I went and just sat on this large rock on the river, right near the bridge towards Moosilauke. I remember I just sat there, and brought a journal and a book and just read and journaled all day, and I didn’t have any friends at the Lodge yet and I didn’t know what I was doing. That became a place I returned to often. Whenever it was a nice day I would go and sit on my rock, spray myself with a lot of bug spray, and just journal and read. So whenever I go back, I like to go there, or stand on the bridge, and that brings back a ton of memories…but yeah, a lot has changed too. It was weird going back there last time because they had put up this whole new cabin, which looks beautiful.
