Which is very unusual for kids from my generation; I'm 21.
You aren't alone. The maker movement is full of people your (our?) age doing exactly what you are. You should try to find a nearby Hackerspace or attend a MakerFaire to meet others like minded. Or even sit in Adafruit's "Show and Tell" Google Hangout.
I found books on Arduino, electronics, and electrical engineering but I didn't understand a word they said, so I figured I'd ask people who had "been there and done that."
First, one pass will never be enough. You'll need to do some reading, some experimenting, then some reading again.
Also, don't be discouraged if the materials are "over your head" (today). Many engineering tutorials are written by engineers. Who often believe the only way to learn something is how they learned it. You know, understand the molecular theory of how transistors work, before you use it to turn on a relay. Which doesn't work for everyone.

. I try to take a more high-level approach with the intent to at least arm you with the right words and phrases to do deeper searches. I also try to add "more in depth" stuff on the show notes pages (linked in the descriptions).
Try not to be so rude.
Sadly there are a couple of members of the forum who think belittling new (to Arduino, Programming, and Electronics) users is a requirement of the forum. This is sad because that small number has convinced a larger number it's okay to act that way on occasion.
