A Sansevieria Trifasciata, common name: Snake Plant or Mother in laws tongue are pretty bullet proof.

Most house plants will last a year, at least, given proper care and conditions. Google: most popular house plants? Pick something that you like and mentions conditions similar to yours. As Rj mentioned, Sans. are easy but they grow slowly. I sense you are looking for more feedback than one of those might give you. Gene

If you could describe in detail the exact location you have in mind for your plant or can post a photo that shows the location, we could probably make some recommendations that would work for you.
An easy plant for one person may not be at all easy for someone else. There are no "bullet-proof" or "impossible to kill" plants.

Lemon seeds seem pretty easy to sprout.
Big box stores sell some plants in 3-4 inch small pots. As Will said, if you don't get a good match of plant to location, it will not do well. But a Pothos in a small starter, in an average, not too dim or too bright, place.. will only have a few leaves to start and you'll probably notice as it grows and is a fairly common not too picky plant.
Or a Lucky bamboo...
