For GUI, I would use wxWidgets. My wiki has references for various GUI toolkits.

I would recommend spending more time exploring the Python language and its standard libraries, instead of moving on. If you didn't know the str() function, you are not quite ready to step outside of the standard Python libraries.

Indeed. Perhaps you should take a look at sites such as projecteuler.net or the Python Challenge (search google) - both have a set of problems that can be solved using Python. They do have different goals though - the Python Challenge will do a lot more for teaching about the various libraries included with Python. Project Euler will require some, but not as many - mostly numpy, bisect and probably one or two more that are of some use algorithmically.

... you forgot to mention other possibilities: web applications, databases, scientific programming, image manipulation....

I don't believe anyone can give you answer (and if they do, it is meaningless - it might be good match for **their** interests but not necessarily for yours). Right answer **for you** depends where **your** interests are, what will be your third step.

Games are fun (to keep you interested) and Pygame is nice library. To get job as programmer, SQL databases are good to know, and different enough (SQL is very different language) to get you deeper understanding of programming.

It depends on what do you want to do..I don't think anyone can give you an answer..they are just telling you what they would do..Each person has it's own taste and it's own opinion...so no one can choose for you..
