A tip for shutting out light: buy a sheet of foam insulation board, measure and cut to fit your window, place in window while you are sleeping. It makes your room pitch black and also insulates against heat/cold. I bought cheap fabric and covered the board (fabric glue works great for this). I leave it in my window all the time and use it like a pin board. You use thumb tacks or push pins to hang pictures or whatever on it.
