Perhaps it is just time for a change of scenery.

It is bittersweet to send him off, in part due to the fact that his departure mixes awkwardly with the rest of the haus' first steps into adulthood, life decisions, and on my part the dawdling of such milestones in life. But we are all simply making strides to grow, and I am eased by the fact that I, too, am moving forward in life despite delay.
To Y: I think I can speak for the entire haus when I say that we wish you lots of adventures, thoughts and feelings. Personally, I can't wait until you feel the butterflies and surreality of being in a different country--that's one of my favorite moments of traveling.
It's going to be lovely when we have a haus gathering in a year, just to enjoy the company of our ever-so-slightly matured selves. Hope you'll have some good stories.
See you in a bit, and don't have too many mimosas sans orange juice on the plane (:
