If you are new to this sort of thing I would suggest you do research regarding the type of spell you are going to cast before casting it.
It is also important not to dabble in things that you may not understand, however, what you decide to do is your choice, as you decide your own life path.
With all that said, if you do decide to cast a spell let me just tell you that Intent is Everything! Without the proper intent your spell probably will not work, or may even backfire!
As a disclaimer I would like to say that I am not an expert on the subject of spell casting, this is just my own advice based upon personal experience.
In the end it is your choice as to what you do, just be careful and don't treat it like a game, as it is very real.

Well, if you're serious about learning how to do magic and with starting from the rock-bottom then you don't start out by casting spells, you start out by learning how and why magic works.
You see, there is no such thing as an "easy" spell or a "beginner" spell. One either understands how magic works and has mastered the basics...in which case the magic will work..or you haven't done that sort of work..and no spell will work no matter how "easy" it seems.
Casting a successful spell involves much more than finding some spell on the internet or in a book, saying some words, lighting a candle, waving a wand of any of that sort of thing. In order for magic to work you need to understand how and why it works in the first place. Grounding and centering, visualization, focus and intent, energy manipulation, etc are all necessary first steps to even begin to have a chance at a spell actually working...and more importantly to prevent a spell from back-firing on you.
So, my advice for anyone who is truly serious is to start by reading a few books and practicing the exercises those books will give you. Once you have mastered the basics you won't need anyone to give you spells, you'll be able to create your own spells that will be far more effective than anything you find on the net. Here's the books I suggest:
"Before You Cast a Spell" by Carl McColman
"Spells and How They Work" by Janet and Stewart Farrar
