It sounds very stressful Eric. Careful with sleeping aids as this could turn into an addiction which you won't need and will screw you up for later. Is it possible to ask for a transfer to another room ... or to have you room mate transferred? Or perhaps when he is trying to sleep start blaring the music and when he says something pop the retard in the face repeatedly until he gets "it". (Just kiddin' )

Lol. Well the thing is he's a good room mate honestly, I don't think I'd want to switch, because believe me, I could and probably would get stuck with someone ALOT worse.
I've asked him to be a little more quiet at night and he's agreed, and I'm sure he'll stand by that.
I see advertisements all the time on TV for that sleep aid, what's it called, Lunesta? It says non habit forming, but I don't know.
I went to GNC and picked up a bottle of an all natural sleep aid, but that didn't do anything for me.
I don't know what I'm going to do.
Not being able to fall asleep is great for getting through books and magazines, but not so good for getting to 8:30 classes everyday and paying attention and then studying.

I find getting difficult philosophical/historical books (which you may be able to handle during the day) good for late at night when you can't sleep. Scientific stuff you don't quite understand is good too. I know it's a cliche but it does work... Oh, and working out should fix most of your problems, it'll tire you out more. I know that since I started traing 18 months ago, my sleep problems have almost totally disappeared.

Or you could be screwed like me and just have poor sleeping habits that are more internal then external. And for myself, I am a part of a small percentage that sleeping pills have the opposite affect ... keep you awake and alert. Good luck Eric.

Sleeping has gotten better, but my diet and workouts have gotten worse.
My routine is three workouts per week, the most I've gotten in the last month is one per week.
My diet ranges from decent days to terrible days.
I do sleep though, mainly because I'm constantly dead.
Between classes, reading, homework, studying, and working, the few hours a day I have to workout, I find myself just laying around.
My diet sucks because my classes hit the main meal times in the caf. So when I'm not in class, all they serve are snacks. There's a store on campus that sells snacks and frozen dinners, so that's mainly what I eat. I try to get to the grocery store for healthy stuff, but I only have a tiny fridge to store stuff and a little microwave to cook it.

You will probably need to take some time to make up a schedule and then stick to it. The beginning will be hard until you get used to it but you will benefit from it if you do. Premake things to eat and base those on your limited storage; is it possible to get more storage space, a supplementary fridge? Possibly you will end up having to do grocery shopping more often ... but again once you get into the habit of doing this then it won't feel as much like a chore, especially when you see the benefit.

Tough life for sure Eric, all new surroundings, bigger responsibilities ... I don't envy you with the exception of you have the opportunity for a good education. It is still early and I suspect you haven't settled totally into things so give it some more time ... and make a schedule ... do it now ... while you are reading this ... quit wasting your time on the forum.

Have fun and good luck.

Today was the day.
I woke up and said it all starts now.
I'm doing my routine without cutting out any lifts, 3 days a week just like in the summer.
I'm going running, swimming, and getting in at least a half an hour of bag work a couple days a week.

I start working out and gym staff stops me.
Sorry they say, Olympic lifts are prohibited.
Free weights are only for curls and bench press, you're not allowed to squat unless it's with the smith machine, no power cleans, deadlifts, etc.
I was told though that they have "plenty of machines that do the same thing."
Yeah....right.

So, now I'm [censored]. Luckily I remembered my vow to make sure I get a lot of bag work. It's been a long time, so I start off slow.
"Woah woah buddy!!! This big bag is only for punching, if you want to kick you have to use the smaller one in the corner, and you can't have your shoes off while kicking put them back on!!"

Ok, even more [censored]. I get to the bag in the corner, front snap kick, medium power, "Woah woah!!! You're going to put a hole in the wall! Light contact to the bag only!"

This is the part where there's 20 different curse words wanting to come out.

I stormed out of the gym.
I can't afford an off campus gym and I have no car anyways.
So much for getting any decent training in.

Frustrating but you will have to adapt Eric. Change up the routine and use what you can. Use the machines if you have to and just put your all into it, that is all you can ask of yourself ... their house, their rules. Any workout is better then no workout and once you get into a routine you will be the better for it.

Good luck to you Eric.

Ok, so in my routine I've replaced power cleans with bent over rows.
I'm still [censored] though, power cleans are so great....
Tuesday and Thursday at 7 in the morning I go to a Flowing Yoga class. Wednesday and Friday I go to a Power Yoga class in the evening and I also do Pilates on Wednesday.
Tuesdays and Thursdays I swim in the afternoon and on Saturday and Sunday evenings I go running.

Getting into a routine yet? Schooling not so much over whelming now? Good luck to you in your studies and training Eric.
