English transcription:

They were wrong when they defined the intimate spaces. There is more of me floating down the river, than there will ever be in my empty bedroom. There is more intimacy in an anonymous letter than in nudity. There is more love in the afternoon sun than in wilting roses.
Because loneliness isn’t selfishness, it is a time for waiting. It is a time for rediscovery.
The sound in the wind evokes my name and the people around me become family. My wisdom doesn’t stop with my words and my kindness is not only in my hands. I belong, whether here or there, because I am aware of myself. Because I caught my story and never let it go.
There once was a schoolgirl who found herself in need of a spanking. She went to her local adult bookstore and picked up a few of the schoolgirl spanking clips. She was so excited to try them out that she forgot to put on a condom. When she arrived home, she quickly took off her clothes and went to her bedroom. She wasted no time getting her bare bottom smacked. The schoolgirl spanking clips felt amazing as they made her bum hot and tingly. She loved the feeling of the hard spanking against her skin and the sting it created. When she was done, she went to the bathroom and cleaned herself up. She was glad she had tried the schoolgirl spanking clips and would definitely do it again.
