Ubuntu FTP file hierarchy

I am trying to FTP some files for backup onto Ubuntu and the file directory is completely different from the libraries I am used to viewing.

How do I FTP files to, let's say documents, and work from there?

FTP is commonly isolated.
You need to provide additional context.
When you FTP and login with your credentials you end up in /home/username
What is your environment?  Are the libraries to which you refer cone from a share?
What client are you using to FTP? What is the source from which you FTP?

I am FTPing with Filezilla from a Godaddy server.

I'm not sure what environment means. It's Ubuntu 14.04. I don't think the libraries are shared but they are no where to be found.

You are logged in as usera
You then try to FTP data and login as usera.
When on the desktop your files are in the libraries
but when you are FTPed you are uncertain to which location the libraries point so that you can place the same files in to be accessible under the Documents heading?

Exactly

Basically a linux newb.

The issues think confusing is that your libraries should be on the left side of the FileZilla interface and should reflect the libraries/documents there, the right side is godaddy's  FTP location.  That is what confuses what it is you are trying to transfer and from/to where.
