have mixed feelings (about something)

To experience positive and negative emotions simultaneously and often in conflict with one another. I have mixed feelings about starting college this fall: on the one hand, I can't wait to start the next chapter in my education, but, on the other, I will be so sad leaving my friends and family behind. I think I'd be happy there, but there might be better schools for me, so I have mixed feelings.
