It took exactly 224 days, about 8 months, but I've finally done it. I folded and hung up 1000 paper cranes. I made a senzaburu. I actually made 1000 a while ago, but after using some for the gift, I had to fold a couple hundred more. It turns out, as I was stringing together the last hundred, I was missing one more crane. So I folded it, and made a wish on it. According to legend, it's guarenteed to come true. I hope it does.
Even if it doesn't. I still get to wake up and see this every morning (as long as I'm a home of course haha).
