[dropcap]A[/dropcap]s I sit in my parents’ living room in the suburbs of Milwaukee, I dwell on closing out on my rookie season as a sportswriter and photographer at EXTRA Newspaper. I really never expected all of this to happen to me within my first year of writing and taking pictures. From sitting in the press box at Soldier Field during Bears’ home games to being at the octagon during several UFC pay-per-view events in Las Vegas, this has been a journey that has been a dream come true.
