STORY BY TAYLOR EISENHAUER
It’s come to my attention that some students want more variety when it comes to Hubbell breakfast. But I would argue that Hubbell breakfast is one of the few constants in a Drake student’s life.
Among fluctuating deadlines, the unpredictable weather and the constant uncertainty of our futures looming over us, we can count on Hubs to have our favorite morning foods.
Now, I admit that I (mostly) hate change. I like things to stay the same, which is why World War III almost erupted when my parents remodeled my childhood home when I was in middle school, but I digress.
But with Drake in a period of flux-new president, new professors, new buildings — it’s nice to know that some things will never change.
I can count on there to be eggs, meat and some kind of potato when I enter Hubbell after a late night of studying (OK, so I meant Netflix binging). It’s comforting to know exactly what I’ll be getting.
And because of this, I look forward to it.
If one day, there were no eggs, I’d be devastated. Nobody wants to walk around someone having a breakdown that early in the morning.
And brunch. Hubbell brunch is a ubiquitous part of campus life. Changing this constancy would just be cruel to the college students dragging themselves to eat after a night of, ahem, totally innocuous activity.
Don’t get me wrong, variety is still the spice of life. But you don’t put spice on everything.
Don’t quote me on this, but I’m pretty sure that’s rule number one of cooking. So varying lunch and dinner options? A-OK. Let’s not get crazy with breakfast, though.
For those who thrive on change, I suggest this: Let’s not change breakfast, let’s add to it. Adding options gives us the best of both worlds. There would be more variety, yet the essential essence of Hubbell breakfast would be unchanged.
We can all live happily ever after (graduation).
