It'll be much harder narrowing down the list than it will be to come up with a big list! Definitely a lot to choose from. My personal favourites are:

- Kenny Chen's weekly UX newsletter (http://uxdesignweekly.com/): I find that if I miss all other newsletters and curations, then this one serves as the best collection of a wide range of topics
- http://heydesigner.com/ : I always look forward to HeyDesigner's weekly updates too. I find they have a nice blend of commentary and hands-on practise material.
- And follow this Medium publication: https://deardesignstudent.com/. It's filled with practical wisdom and oftentimes speaks to real and specific problems that we, designers, can face in the trenches.

I agree with Ali, there are a TON of good resources out there. Too many to follow. I'll add that hackingui.com has a lot of good stuff and a good weekly newsletter that easy to scan.
