I'm so awkward. On the first day of school, I tried to make friends by talking to this girl, but she obviously didn't want to talk to me so it got awkward. I try to make conversations but it always ends up being short and it's uncomfortable for me.

Try not to put so much pressure on yourself! Garunteed there are other people there that feel the same way, and also share a lot of your interests.
Just give it time, and friendships with manifest naturally!
