I got a girl's number yesterday and texted her, "Hey _______, it's me ______. How's life? How are those quarter grades coming along?" a little over five hours ago. I still have no reply. Does this mean she's not interested? How long should I wait until sending her another text (I know I should wait at least a day, just saying)?
And sorry if this is a bad question. I am a complete noob at texting. This is the first time I got a girl's number in my life.

I'd not send another text. She may be playing text games or not interested. If you really want to, give it another few days and send one FINAL text. 5 hours is a long time, come on. We are all attached to our phones.0

You shouldn't worry about it! Some people aren't huge texters or even look at their phone very much. I often go many hours or a day without replying. The girl I'm interested in (who has made it very clear she is interested in me) has often not replied for many hours. At first, I couldn't help but have the same nervous feeling that she might not be interested, but I knew it wasn't logical. But lo and behold, hours later or the next day I'd get a reply. Or we might go a few days without contact and she might send something like "Hey pretty baby"- which is a relief. Even if she did look at your text, maybe she's waiting so she has some time to sit and answer it later. She probably has a life so she can't be expected to be texting a lot through the day. I DON'T really have a life right now and even I am pretty lax about it. Nobody likes being pestered though, so if she doesn't reply, maybe back off for a while and see what happens. Don't worry!2
