The only practical way to learn physics is to do a physics degree. It's a really, really hard subject!!! You need all the resources you can find. The first resource needed is a University, with actual physicists on hand to answer the many questions you will have, set course work, give lectures, give continual direction, etc... You also need a library & University Bookshop full of books to access, for the many times when your textbook, and other resources, just doesn't do it for you. If none of these resources help you, then you might try the internet, but it's a last resort, mostly best avoided, and not likely to work.

If you feel dumb because you can't understand Wikipedia articles, don't feel dumb. It's the Wikipedia articles, not you - they are, mostly, like notes made by a very terse graduate student for himself, and then made more obscure by other graduate students adding their notes at random. Most other internet resources are usually lecture summaries, and need a lecturer to fill them out in lectures, or an actual textbook (or 10), to be of any real use.
