Hook 'em!

Spike!
As many of you know, I'm a student at the University of Texas at Austin. I was in the process of researching classes to take next semester (UT registration is coming up very soon!) when I saw this lovely blurb on the English Department website. To be honest, I'd actually forgotten that I'd sent the info to one of my favorite professors. What a great job the department did!

Click here for the original page, or read on below:

Junior English major Lindsey Carmichael recently returned from the Paralympic Games in Beijing as a bronze-medal winner in women’s archery. A resident of Lago Vista, Texas, Carmichael is an avid student of literature and an excellent writer. Those who followed her summer blog—appropriately titled “Rings and Arrows: The Adventures of an American Archer Dreaming in Beijing”—recognize Carmichael’s literary talents. As Professor Douglas Bruster observed: “It’s rare to find someone with both a special athletic ability and the means to describe athletic experience in such engaging prose. Lindsey possesses real gifts, and has only started to discover what she can do with them.” Carmichael will resume her studies at UT in the spring.
