    Default two problems

    1. What does 'sets of bedrooms' mean?

    2. What does 'got out of the way of thinking' mean?

    1 It would mean a group of bedrooms, though it's a stange phrase to me.
    2 It could mean avoiding doing the thinking or avoiding the consequences of the thinking. Can you give some more context?

    Or it could mean 'lost the habit of thinking [academically]' - as a GAP-year student might. As Tdol said, we need more context.
