Oh please don't follow this "canstantine". Look at his biography! "I practice witch"? A vampire and demon hunter? And his name happens to be the character of a Keanu Reeves movie. This screams role player.
As your questions and get to know the people here. Pick a teacher off of which people make sense to you. Magick makes perfect sense. I assure you.
Welcome. I'm sure that you can find many people willing to help you with learning. One tip:watch out for people who claim things like being half-demon such as "canstantine", as the person above me mentioned he is likely to be a role-player who will try to teach you lies, not necessarily malevolent but just misinformed.
The first thing you have to do is to ask yourself who you are.
What kind of character are you? Do you have any goals in life?
If I were you Id take a moment to write down on a paper everything I dream of doing. Is there anything you would like to change in this world? Are you drawn to mysteries and want to explore it?
Over time, magic will bring a lot of responsibility.
My advice is to not bee naive and dont let yourself be fooled by tricksters. Be skepical when you explore the magic.
Once you know what you want to work on then you should get yourself books. Read a lot and think independently.
Many people can help you along the way but only you know what you are good at.
I think the important thing is to understand the elements and energies. But thats just a drop in the ocean.

Another thing to keep in mind as you explore yourself and the world around you in your search for magic is that magic is, at its heart, the essence of all things. As such, it is nature... The laws of the universe, creation, destruction, etc. Come to understand how you work within and without. Come to understand how the world around you works within and without. Delve into the universe as a whole. Explore the astral, and the realms with which it connects.
But do not hurry, or feel a need to push too hard. Magic is understanding, and understanding comes with time.
