A programming language is a tool to solve problems, so first of all:
do you have problems to solve? You can create some visualizations,
some program with GUI, some networked code to download things and
process them, etc.

Another thing is that you probably have to learn beyond syntax, you
can learn about GUIs, network protocols, PyGame, mathematics, some
science, etc, they will give you both more things to learn (about the
language too) and problems/ideas to solve.
