    Hi Bhawna,

    The number one on your list truly deserve the first spot, because they always want you aquire new items, whether they need it or not. It’s become a habit, or shall I say an addiction. More is that, just like writers, they’re always coming up with new ideas, it are looking for different ways to integrate new concepts into their work.
