TV with no headphone jack AND no audio output jacks! HELP!

I recently bought a used 13 inch television for college.
It works great, but I just found out that my roommate doesn't really watch much television and might find it annoying if I do. :/
So, I tried to see if I could find a solution.
To my dismay, I found that the television has no headphone jack. I have read that you can buy an adapter to plug into the output jacks, but unfortunately, my tv doesn't have those either...although it has input jacks. Go figure.
Anyway, I had a television like this a long time ago that I had to buy a block adapter for it so I could connect a DVD player. This block adapter has video/audio inputs and outputs and connects to the television through a coaxial cable. Would it be possible to plug this into the television and then somehow attach speakers or headphones to that?
If not, does anyone know anything about wireless headphones that send infrared signals? Do these work? Are they worth the price? Does anyone have any suggestions? Any suggestions AT ALL? Happy I suppose I could always just read captions off the screen...but that's really not an appealing option.
Your help would be greatly appreciated!!!
