I feel like a one-trick pony at work, and it's affecting how I look at my job. How to navigate this?

One-trick pony definition at Dictionary.com, a free online dictionary with pronunciation, synonyms and translation. Look it up now! How do you feel about your work? I feel like I've been doing it for 12 years! I'm bored, I'm frustrated, and I'm starting to really kick myself for not having moved into a new line of work sooner. I don't want to look back on my life and see nothing but filing papers and bookkeeping and scheduling. So far, I feel like we’ve only scratched the surface on this topic and over the next few years we’re going to see a complete revolution in how the game is played. I definitely don’t have all the answers yet but I’m hoping that by communicating with each other and sharing ideas we’ll advance the game into a new age. One Trick Pony is led by owners Rob Reed and Keith Pizer. After working in New York City for years, Rob and Keith traded the big city for small-town USA. We are located in the “The Blueberry Capital of the World” – Hammonton, NJ., in the heart of South Jersey’s farmlands, in between Philadelphia and Atlantic City. Or maybe at work we use our same little tricks to get the job done... more drop shadows anyone? There's nothing necessarily wrong with these things on their own, but when you resort to being a "one-trick pony" in any, and in some cases, all areas of your life, that's when you're going to have problems. Updating my CV is difficult, because there isn't a clear job title for what I want to do. Not only are my skills and experience hard to describe as a complete package, but while I'm confident about my creative skills, nobody has paid me for them before. That means it's a struggle to describe how I can add value to an employer.

2020.07.02 22:23 throwawayyy01243 I feel like a one-trick pony at work, and it's affecting how I look at my job. How to navigate this?

Hi everyone,
I've been feeling a little "eh" about my new job (been here about 2 months now) for a while. After doing a lot of reflection, I realized that a big part of this stems from an insecurity that I'm not doing enough or making my presence known, even though I have a good reputation in this company (have done work with them before, and they recruited me).
A big part of this is that I'm lumped together with a co-worker, who's been here about 5 months now. He's great, and I enjoy working with him, but I realized that I find myself comparing our workload often. Because he was here when the pandemic started, he got assigned to do a lot of random "stuff" that pertains to the pandemic, but he's doing many varied tasks (ranging from helping design websites/manuals, hosting webinars, writing briefs on specific topics, etc.). His title is "Coordinator," which feels very general (and is probably relevant, as you'll see). Essentially, he's the go-to person for a bunch of miscellaneous tasks.
My title is "Research Associate." I've been doing...COVID-19 related research. Sometimes, I'll be assigned a topic to do a deep-dive into, and I've created processes and protocols for certain topics. Other times, I'll just be asked to look into specific requests or questions that our customers have about navigating the COVID world.
I recently had a call that solidified this feeling that I'm the research guy, and he's the everything else guy. Granted, he has insane requests, and he's often frustrated/annoyed at people while I'm just doing my thing. I think it just feels like I'm doing barely anything, while he's taking everything on.
I've asked if I can help with any tasks, and he says he can do it. I've asked my supervisor if she'd like to see any improvements from me, and she said she thinks I've been doing a great job thus far. It might be an insecurity thing or a pride thing, but I can't help but shake this feeling that I'm not doing enough, or that I can't be trusted to do something - essentially, I feel like I'm living in my co-worker's shadow.
From a 3rd person perspective - any thoughts? I'm wondering if I just need to realize that, hey, this is my lane. I'm the research person, and he's the "everything else" person. Sure, I don't always speak up in meetings (my supervisor, who's the lead researcher, usually is the one to talk on behalf of us), but maybe that's not my role.
I'd appreciate any words of advice. I'd like to not feel like I'm not doing enough, because it's a constant nagging feeling that I have, and it's made me feel almost bitter towards my company for not allowing me to do more than just research.
Thank you!

2020.07.02 22:23 basicburnerbitch Upset about having to self quarantine, feel I might have made a mistake about relaying information overheard to my employer.

I am currently an essential employee, and have remained employed throughout the pandemic. Recently, one of my neighbors came home from work and I overheard her talking on the phone. She was complaining that she was pissed off because a coworker of hers tested positive Sunday, and another one tested positive yesterday, both for COVID-19. She was saying that her employer never addressed the employees about any of it until yesterday, and that the health department had taken over and was going to be contacting everybody that was in contact with them, but she had worked with both of them and she has to self quarantine and get a test. Of course when I heard this, I started thinking back to if I had been in contact with her recently: She had dropped off a bag of clothing over the weekend for my kids and said if none of it fit I could throw it away because she didn’t want it. I had gone through it and nothing was their size, so I tossed it. Last week she came over to my place twice, and although we had stayed outside on my porch, we were definitely not 6 feet apart and didn’t have masks on, which I realize was an error on my part because most everybody is well aware of all the recommendations for social distancing. This morning I mentioned all of this to my employer, but they didn’t seem too phased. For peace of mind in general, I called to schedule a test because I realized it was finally possible in my state to request a test (until very recently it was strictly referral only and you had to meet certain guidelines, and I have heard some people were turned down even though they were showing symptoms etc). When I called to schedule the test I explained my situation (basically everything above) and the soonest I could get a test would be Monday. I told my employer, and they wanted me to get tested today. I spent about an hour calling around trying to find somewhere where this was possible, and finally reached an Urgent Care facility that could, but it was a two hour wait and it would take up to 8 days for result, whereas the one Monday would be 3-4 days. The nurse at the Urgent Care facility said honestly I was probably better off waiting until Monday because I would get the results sooner as weekends don’t count for them (the UC) and they strongly encouraged me to self quarantine until then and warned me I would be advised to quarantine until I get results regardless where I got the test done, which I figured would be the case. I told my employer and they finally decided to send me home to quarantine until the test and then the results. They seemed semi-upset as we are already short staffed and super busy, so I realize this was definitely going to make my coworkers lives more difficult, and I feel 10,000% upset about it. I’m even questioning whether I should have relayed this information to my employer in the first place now because I feel they are upset with me. Anyway I don’t know if I did the wrong thing or if I did the right thing anymore. I feel like they are all upset with me because of it but I didn’t mean to cause issues, I just wanted to be on the safe side and tell them everything and schedule a test to be sure.

Hey guys! Just reached 110 and stopped legion content to start a quest that pop up on the right side and I started, it was that one against sylvanas and then she flew away with the rest of the horde. But before I accept that quest there was another one that popped up at the same time as the other but now there’s no quest, just the next one to the one that I completed

2020.07.02 22:23 DIYThings Memory Leak? 49-80% of ram used at idle with little to none used in processes

Hey there, I've had a problem the past few weeks where between 1/2 to 2/3rd of my ram is constantly in use at idle with nothing taking up a significant chunk of memory besides my web browser. I build and repair computers for a living so I've done a lot of the regular stuff you'd do (check RamMap, active processes in TM, checked to see how much ram is in reserve etc.) and I'm stumped. I recently loaned my friend half of my RAM so I've been rocking 8 GB but surely this much shouldn't be hogged at idle. I've never dealt with a memory leak before but I feel like I've covered most of my bases---what gives?
Here's some pics:

2020.07.02 22:23 thanirs Thinking of replacing my Ring doorbell with Hello

I am mostly in Google ecosystem. I have Nest Secure and indoor camera. I don't have any outdoor cameras but contemplating Nest outdoor cameras. My home came with Ring video door bell and would like to replace it with Hello. The end goal would be to subscribe to Nest Aware as it would be economical to have one subscription with multiple cameras as opposed to one with Nest and another for Ring. Thoughts?
Also, is it straightforward to remove the Ring and replace it with Nest? Is t he wiring required the same for both? Thanks!

2020.07.02 22:23 bruh12345bruh Best Open Banking API for EU accounts?

Working on a prototype and need access to transactions/accounts data. Initially I will probably need to update such data upon request or at regular times daily. Which ones do you think are the most appropriate? T(h)inking of using Tink to get a huge coverage of different accounts early on, or start small with UK based accounts with TrueLayer. Other suggestions?
