Those I mentioned are system-level directories.

How you store things on your own depends on how you like to organize your
system. I tend to keep large things like videos and ISO images on a secondary
hard disk (/mnt/Storage), while smaller things like documents and music files I
keep in my home directory (~/Music, ~/Documents, ~/Documents/Schoolwork,
~/Photos, ~/Wallpapers, etc.)
