Just meet up before class and then sit together
Most Helpful Girl
Why can't all three of you sit together? Go to class a few minutes early and when you see your friend holler at her and when you see the other girl holler at her too. Something like hey I'm over here type thing.
I don't think you have anything to worry about with your friend. And I also don't think y'alls texts were awkward or weird.
