Too little, too much

I follow quite a few different news sources that generate a long list of topics to go through every day. It's a challenge to keep up with everything I'm interested in all the time.

As such, on a normal day, it can feel tedious to go through the whole list for the day. There are so many posts created daily on all those news sites, blogs, subreddits and other sites I get my news from. And at the end of the day, I probably end up reading through only a few of those articles and discussions plus a dozen or so quickly skimmed through.

So yes, there is a lot of noise in that list. Sure, just reading the headlines gives some information in general level. But still, I could skip 80% of those news easily and it wouldn't change anything fact that I could go the list through much faster.

On the other hand, there are days when I have an abundance of time. On those days the list feels to end too soon. I could just go on and on. But instead, have to resort spending my time in some other way. And that's not necessarily a bad thing.
