Or are you talking about the root (/) directory? The dual use of "root" for both the base of the directory structure and the superuser can be confusing to new users of linux.
If you are the only user, then you're files will always be in the same location unless you move them elsewhere. Just a matter of learning where things are kept. After a short time you'll begin remembering where they are. Just be patient.
