This is the first presidential that I am truly undecided. After tonight’s debate, I am leaning strongly towards @ewarren, @KamalaHarris, or @JulianCastro.

RT @jvsetzler: Protesters: “We are DACA recipients. Our lives are at risk!” #demdebate
^this is sarcasim. I couldn’t type it in comic sans.
Really proud that the old white man is leaning into his privilege and getting angry about it. That’s a solid look.
RT @Izac_Wright: Why do debate hosts REFUSE to ask Sanders about this? #DemDebate twitter.com/zac_petkanas/s…
I am surpised @ewarren didn’t mention she taught at any of the following schools — University of Houston, the University of Texas at Austin, the University of Pennsylvania, and Harvard University. Cause she did.
If you ever hear me say, “let me be clear”, walk away. Just walk away. Know that I am sorry and I will do better.
Did @amyklobuchar just make a joke that boils down to, “I am god”??????? What in the absolute fuck?????
I like seeing the candidates get more comfortable as the night goes on. Their personalities are starting to show. This is the benefit of a 3 hour debate.
We just learned @JoeBiden isn’t opposed to the fillibuster. Jeeeez
Hey at @ABCPolitics. How about come questions about climate change during this #DemDebate?
As a bald man, I can tell you bald jokes always win. Always. People always love them. They are always the best. Always. Seriously.

This is the @BetoORourke that almost beat @tedcruz.
The Brady Bill passed in 1993. That is the bill @JoeBiden says makes him qualified for president.
We are an hour in and we haven’t addressed gun violence prevention or climate change.
When presented with her record, @amyklobuchar denied it, didn’t answer, and took credit for others work. This is why I simply cannot support her candidacy.
Curious what the total response is about @JulianCastro back and forth. I loved it. I am glad he was strong, informed, and passionate. Glad he is on that stage.
Amazing response from @KamalaHarris. If she wants to run against @realDonaldTrump while others attack each other, I am all in on that.
One night. One stage. One debate. This is better and more substantial.
From 2012 to 2017, Austin, Fort Worth, and others experienced the fastest growth in share of college graduates as make up of the city. What starts here changes the world. Read more and see additional charts from @CityLab: bit.ly/2khyKkT
U.S. created 500,000 fewer jobs since 2018 than previously reported, new figures show on.mktw.net/2P69bSr Another thing @realDonaldTrump seems to be bad at… creating jobs. Great.

Our Texas Senators @JohnCornyn and @tedcruz, need to stop kowtowing to insurance companies and drop the Alexander Murray bill. 4.5 million Texans don't have insurance. More are underinsured. We need leadership and not just partisanship. twitter.com/charliekirk11/…

Logged into twitter and love seeing all the responses to my tweet supporting @JoaquinCastrotx. There were two buckets — good people who want the best version of America and jerks who harped on a human moment, typo to spew hate towards me and others. Nothing in between. Fun stuff.

Okay… back to work...
This doesn't account for all the little things throughout the days or the atempts to work and imrpove at work and at home. It's cool to look back after 5 days and feel proud of the work though. It was a feeling I was hungry for. It's also something you have to pause to experience
I have faciliated two full days of workgroups to help draft a strategic plan, worked with @ImpactHubAustin and Impact Accelerator co-hort, written an entire business plan for another non-profit with an amazing SVP (at @Mission_Capital), and gotten back into marathon training.
I want to take a moment to reflect on this week a little if you don’t mind. I wish I could share all the details of who I get to work with, but I can’t. What I can say is that this has been a stressful and super fulfilling week.
