Hi July!

# 75 Happy to see a beginning of a new month and, at least for me, a new financial year! I’ve been spending less time on here to attend to my end-of-financial year obligations and I’m so relieved it’s now over with everything under control. I have closed the books for the old year and a fresh budget for the new year is laid out... I have set a rather optimistic myLot goal in the beginning of June. I said I’d increase my activity number (the number in parenthesis next to my username) by 1000 in June. It was at 21420 in the beginning of June, and it should be at 22420 at the end of June if I were successful. As you can see, I failed as it’s only barely over the 22k mark. Oh well, I’ll just carry on the goal into July and will shoot to break 23k mark by end of July... Happy myLotting you all! Oh, what is the name of the beautiful bright pink flower in my picture? I’m terrible with flower names - only know the basic like roses or tulips...

It will be July in two hours.

For you it will... It's been July all day down here and I had to restraint myself not to post this too early just so the time-stamp on this would support my discussion...

I missed to reach the 100K mark, I will do in July I hope. The pink flower in your picture is a Begonia.

thanks for the information ~ I had a feeling you'd know when you see the picture... you'll have to average about 150 activities a day to join the 100k club... to me, that's like impossible, but for you maybe it's doable...

Another month, times really flies . It is good to have a goal every month since it keeps you on your toes, the higher the goal the better. Looking at the leaves , I feel that the flower belongs to the family of hibiscus..

It's a pretty flower, but I do not know its name. That's because I do not mean it. I, instead, closed the month of June with $ 3.91, then no redeem! Patience, will be next month. As for my attitudes here, at the moment I'm (8021). I'd say you're definitely superior. My congratulations

Is it a Carnation flower no? Hope you can achieve your goal then in July Sishy. This July I have a crucial meeting to attend at the end of July ..I pray it goes well..that is my main worry at this time. My goals I am taking one by one, it is the only way for me now. I am so easily stressed out by nonsense now. Overwhelming.

Happy July . . . and Happy New Financial Year! Ah, well it sounds like you were pretty close anyway . . . almost there. You were super busy so you have a legit excuse . Hope you can relax a bit now and be here even more so you can hit that goal for next month. As for the flower, I guess you got answers from others . . . it's so pretty! Is this from your yard?

@velvet53 Very kind of you... Our number increases by one each time we post a discussion, a response, or a comment... So, it's really up to me if I'm able to increase it by over 100 activities in the next couple of days... For some members that many activities are easy to do in a day, but I tend to read too much when I'm on here and really slow to post anything so it'd be quite a feat for me.

Another member also guessed Hibiscus but yet another said it's a Begonia and after checking the pictures of both online my picture does look closer to the Begonia... Yes, the fiscal year in some places do not always follow the calendar year. There are places where it runs from 1 April to 31 March (the UK, I believe) and in Australia it runs from 1 July to 30 June of the following calendar year.
