That’s understandable. But you’ve made friends before and you’ll do it again. Say “hi,” smile, remember name, don’t talk too much about how great your old friends are and sign up for after-school activities—theater, newspaper, sports. Working with others on projects or in teams makes for easier bud-bonding opportunities. And in your attempt to be social, don’t let your schoolwork slip. Talk to teachers if you feel lost or if you’re at a different level than the rest of your class.

Same here! It's a new school year - better than the middle of the year though. Just talk to a girl you are near, like saying a compliment (it almost ALWAYS gets them to say at least a sentence or two and is almost guaranteed to start a convo.) Best to do this in homeroom so you know someone you can sit with at lunch.
