    You know hun since this is last year, you don't have very long to make a decision. I do believe that even if we do tell you how to go about him, you'll still just make yourself invisible. You need to make yourself noticeable, while being attractive. Don't be an annoying girl, please. I'm not a guy, but even I know when a girl is desperate. Just be as casual as possible. Start speaking. Saying hi couldn't harm too much now can it? Go for it lady! Good luck!
