I've passed my PMP Exam!!

I've passed my PMP (Project Management Professional) Exam!!

After working very hard for 2.5 months... finally... yesterday was my exam day!!!
The exam was taken at Prometric Test Center (near Sherbourne subway station) and it was a scary experience.

Ok... The exam was scary... but more than that...

First... When I first arrived, the staff at the test center couldn't find my name in the sign-in/sign-out book. I had to show them my email confirmation to let them know that I was scheduled to take the exam at noon. Luckily, they found my name in the computer.

Then... It was the long exam... sitting in a small desk in front of a computer for 4 hours... 200 multiple choice questions with a lot of questions asking you for the BEST choice or the FIRST thing to do in a situation... I hated those questions... I took 2 breaks in between... The drink and snack that I brought with me definitely helped...

Finally... After the exam, I was supposed to know the result right away... However, my test computer didn't show me any result... The staffs also didn't see the result in their computer... They even rebooted the computers... At that time, I was really afraid that my test records were all lost and I had to take the 4 hour exam all over again... After spending 4 hours taking the exam, the thought of spending another 4 hours doing the same thing was very devastating... Luckily, a lady and her daughter came to visit the staffs... (I guess she also works at the test center but on a different shift.) She assured me that all test records won't be lost... After approx. 15-20 mins, my test records finally showed up in the staffs' computer... I PASSED!!!

I almost got a heart attack due to the excitements...

I am crossing my fingers.
Pray for me!!

Flying Car

The flying car has made a successful maiden flight on March 5th, 2009 at Plattsburgh International Airport.

The flying car is built by Terrafugia Inc. and is called Transition Roadable Aircraft Proof of Concept. It can go from drive to fly in 30 seconds. That's how long it takes for its wings to extend and lock into place. It needs 1,700 feet to take off.

If all goes as planned, the flying car will be on the market for $194,000 by the end of 2011.

I want one!
Then I will no longer be stuck in traffic jams on highways!
