Rocky McGredy is a columnist and editor of FIVE THôT. He has a consumerist view of the world a voice that tells story in a conversational yet powerful tone. If you haven't read all of Rocky's writing, I encourage you to do so. Here are five of our favorites.
Oh to be young, hip and trendy. Spending all of your possible expendable income on things like $130 Louis Vuitton shoes you found at a “thrift” store or getting sloshed at some music festival? Careful, you may be a trendy whore.
In an age of instant messaging, on-demand television, and social networking, the common perception that dating sites are for random sex or for the fringes of the population that otherwise couldn’t find partnership via actual human contact have shifted.
