Electricity is fairly predictable though, so it's pretty easy to pick up the basics. If you're interested in doing projects you should start with a kit set, like making a transistor radio.
Eventually you realize it's just like playing with legos. You just have to put the right piece in the right slot and everything will work.
You do need to be careful though. Make absolutely sure you do understand safety rules for electronics, like keeping your work space dry and never working on anything that you've connected to the power.
Good luck, I'm sure you'll be making demonic teddy bears yourself before long.
