adjusting the firehose again

this is not a new topic whatsoever, but just reading this article, How to Boost Your Reading Comprehension by Reading Smarter and More Conscientiously, reminded me that i should reevaluate my reading habits for the new year. when i first moved to costa rica i ratcheted DOWN radically on the amount of stuff i was plowing through, the amount of feeds i followed, the twitter, etc. but over the last five years i have slowly but surely added more and more, and a lot of my time now is divided between spanish and english. i have a lot of interests, and i probably need to trim down. probably a lot. and spend more time at the beach, doing zero reading.
