    Depending on your level of skill - try implementing one of these:

    1. Write an Applet (one that could be ported to an Android device)
    2. Write a text adventure game using Swing and AWT
    3. Write a complex graphics program
    4. Write a simulator for an elevator, ATM and a roller coaster
    5. Re-do Minecraft(R)

    Give yourself a small project. Remake a game (like Pong) or an application (like excel or paint), or put together a small website, or create a little Android app. Which direction you go really depends on what your interests are.

    You could also look into Project Euler or Code Hunt. Or you could find one of those free online courses and do the homework.
