토끼 (tokki) | [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

Disclaimer: This word is a repeat. 

Word:

  • 토끼 (tokki) | rabbit

When to use:

  • Since this is just the regular way to say rabbit, there’s no specific instances when it can be used other than when talking about a rabbit.

i.e.,

  • 오늘 아침에 토끼를 봤어. (oneul achim-e tokkileul bwass-eo.) | I saw a rabbit this morning.
  • 저쪽에 토끼가 있습니까? (jeojjog-e tokkiga issseubnikka?) | “is that a rabbit over there?”

Artist of the Week | BIBI(비비)

While I was gone I was listening to some songs by a lot of different artists. I wanted to expand my horizon beyond groups and get back to listening to solo artists.

And low and behold I find BIBI (비비). I have never heard of the show “The Fan” but I found out she was a contestant on that show and honestly, she’s so great! I loved her rendition of Peek-A-Boo by Red Velvet. She has this unique sound that’s like a pop mix with contemporary. And it fits her so well.

If you haven’t heard her new song, “(비누) BINU” check it out below!

또 왔어 (tto wass-eo)| [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

오랜만이에요. 너무 오래 걸려서. 미안해요! 하지만, I’m back now! So even though this does say “Word of the day” technically it should say “Phrase of the Day.”

Phrase:

  • 또 왔어 (tto wass-eo)| “I’m back!” or “I’m here again.”

This phrase is a bit casual and can be used in casual settings. Since we’re all friends here I’m using it to announce that I’m back but also to kinda show you how to use it.

What’s changing?

  • I’ll be cutting back on my posts for a while to figure out what’s missing on here and what could be expanded on differently. I may even be updating past posts to make them easier to understand or correcting where I made an error. I started this blog as a way to help me learn Korean and so some of my earlier posts can be a bit confusing or contain minor errors so I plan to update those when I find them.
  • I will be focusing more on Word of the Day posts and Phrases.

Which brings me to my second point:

  • I’m going to start explaining when you can use a word or a phrase when I make these posts. I think that’s more useful than just seeing a word or phrase. It’s good to know how to use it as well.
  • WOTD, Artist of the Week, Foreign Language Tip posts will resume. I may occasionally add a Weekly Lesson post but it won’t be as consistent as before until I go through all the posts and see what’s been discussed and figure out how to make the series a bit more useful.
  • There still won’t be any new grammar posts. The mini grammar lessons will be added into posts where it’s a necessary part of the lesson.

And now for the question I know you all want to ask…

Where have you been?

  • I’m sorry for my extended absence. Initially, I only intended to take a week long break but then that break kinda extended for a couple of months. It was never my intention to disappear like that. But I just realized that I was doing incredibly too much and I had to find a balance with everything that I was doing. I’m not the best at scheduling and I really don’t do a lot to take care of myself like I should. But I think I have it figured out now. I will take breaks again but they won’t be for that long and I’ll let you guys know before I do.

I’m still available for questions whether on a break or not! If you’re ever searching through the blog and you don’t see something here that you have questions about or maybe you saw a post and you had a question but you didn’t want to comment on the blog, you can always email me at twentythirdstation@gmail.com and I’ll do my best to answer your questions. If I can’t answer it, I will refer you to sites that may be helpful as well!

So that’s it!

Hello!!

안녕하세요!!

I’m writing you guys today to first say that I’ll be returning from my hiatus soon. It was a completely unintentional break but I figured it would be good to let you all know that I’m okay and that I’ll be posting again soon.

If you’re new here, Welcome!! I saw the new follows and was truly excited to see people still finding my blog and still interacting with my posts. It’s really encouraging. I haven’t been doing too much with Korean lately as I’ve been kinda busy and really focused and other things and so my second language journey has kinda taken a back seat. On top of that, I really honestly kind of got a little lost on what else I could post. I was repeating myself so much that I just needed to figure out what else I could do or say. And honestly, I’m still kinda of in that same space.

But I’ll be returning soon and I’ll be doing things a bit differently.

See you soon!
