Crush on a girl at school

Hey, so this is my dilemma. I recently moved to a new high school at the start of the year. I had to get an orientation of the school. It's an only girls school. I got an orientation from 4 prefects. I got introduced to each of them and felt a certain attraction towards one of the girls who were giving me an orientation. I don't know why though. I think it's because I'm going through a phase where I want to figure things out about myself, and that includes sexuality. I think what made me feel something towards her was the fact that she had short hair and I, being the stupid girl I am, decided that it is safe to assume that she may be into girls. I know that this is an extremely foolish assumption to make. So I basically saw her as someone who can help me figure things out. Now, this orientation thing happened a while again. School's started, it's been about 5 months. In these 5 months I've seen her around, but I haven't really had a proper conversation with her. I can count the number of times I had any interaction with her (excluding orientation), it would be about 3 times. I remember one of the times where us biology students had an assignment due, so we were talking about it in this room that I go to early in the morning before school starts (she always comes there too). She asked me and this other girl what animals we were doing. I replied and that was about it. It was around this time that she waved to me when we were crossing paths - that was the best day ever. The second time was when she jumped off stage very perfectly, so I told her that it was amazing because I was the only one who saw. She remarked by saying that it would have been amazing if she fell over, which she didn't (thank god!). The most recent time was when she offered me lollies in the same classroom early in the morning. I smiled and replied by saying I was okay, and I thanked her. Since then I haven't talked to her and I don't see her around school that much. I'm also extremely shy and introverted so I don't know how to talk to her. I don't even know if she's into girls. Apart from seeing her early in the mornings in that classroom, I see her at a club in school I go to every Friday lunchtime. She is there most times. I really want to talk to her, but my shyness and fear is stopping me. What if she isn't into girls? I don't know what to do. I know that I really like her, I really need help on this situation, what should I do? We don't have any classes together, so that also sucks.

I realised that this post is quite long, so I've tried to cut it down :)
Also, just another thing, she most definitely is not leading me on or anything like that.?

If she always goes to the same room that you do before school can you try talking to her then? I guess being shy isnt gonna help but seriously the only way to get to know her is to talk. Just be like "hi remember me?" and maybe offer her some lollies :) Youre probably gonna have to force yourself to talk but its the only way.
Sorry I know I wasnt much help. Hope it works out for you though :)?

I really want to talk to her. You've suggested a good idea, but do you think it's a bit weird to ask this since school has been going for 5 months. Ahhh, I want to talk to her so bad, but I'm terrified. I know I'll make a fool out of myself. I just feel invisible around her, I'm not noticeable enough. I'm just the quiet girl that sits at the back of the classroom gawking at her! How else do you think I should initiate conversation? Do you think I should ask her about what happened at the club, because I was unable to attend on Friday. I feel so nervous around her, I'll probably collapse

Also, thank you so much for replying, I had lost hope of getting any advice 😊. You really helped and I really appreciate it?

Nooo it wouldnt be weird to ask that after 5 months at all. I mean itd be kinda weird if you were like "hi remember me?" on the next day after orientation :) Yep asking her what happened at the club is a really good idea. Just tell her you couldnt make it on the Friday so can she fill you in on what happened. That's a perfect way to start a convo with her......and then you could offer her some lollies :D?
Try not to get nervous but hey if you collapse shes gonna have to pick you up off the floor so maybe try collapsing as a plan B lol.?
Good luck. I know you can do it :)

Okay, I guess I should try it. Haha, i should definitely use that as my plan B! I'm already feeling nervous. Thank you so much for your advice 😊

You're welcome :) Hope it goes the way you want it to :D?
