Or instead of diving into the Python core which might be pretty heavy  
stuff, create some open source code -- a game, a calculator, a music  
generator, an app to automatically download weather maps, etc.  
Whatever tickles your fancy. If you're willing to stand on your merits  
(and it sounds like you are), you can point people to where your code  
is hosted and say, "I wrote that".

Anyway, it's something to do in between hitting refresh on http://www.python.org/community/jobs/

Good luck to you
