Song lyrics stuck in my head

"She thought she'd done some living
But now she's just wonderin'
What she's living for
Now she's feeling that there's something more

Is there life out there
So much she hasn't done
Is there life beyond
Her family and her home
She's done what she should
Should she do what she dares
She doesn't want to leave
She's just wonderin
Is there life out there

She's always lived for tomorrow
She's never learned how
To live for today
She's dyin' to try something foolish
Do something crazy
Or just get away

There's a place in the sun that she's never been
Where life is fair and time is a friend
Would she do it the same as she did back then
She looks out the window and wonders again" -
Is There Life Out There - Reba McEntire
Well, obviously I'm not married at twenty nor do I have kids, etc like this song is about... but this song gets stuck in my head sometimes and nags me until I let it go through the thought cycle... Especially at times when I want to change something about myself and I get scared about it so I put it off. The very current one is the sudden urge to cut off my hair to chin-length. I kid you not, the urge just hit me less than five minutes ago and it was all I could do to keep from calling my dad to get the phone number for the place the rest of the family gets their hair cut at to make an appointment first thing in the morning (make the appointment, not force them to give me one in the morning). Two problems with that: 1) Tomorrow is Sunday and I don't think they're open so making an appointment tomorrow is a moot point. 2) I don't know how long this urge will last. That and I'm still having coloring issues. Urgh.
Having the little brother visit last night was fun. Botany field trip to the Myriad Botanical Gardens was fun too but went on for much too long. At least there were, um, "interesting" people to talk to there, right? Now I'm trying to get this darn studying thing done. See how well it's going....
