What your teacher is likely to want to see here is evidence that you have understood what you have read or been told about the changes of the Renaissance.  So, the best thing for you to do would be to look at all the things that your teacher or book has said about what things were like in the Renaissance.  Then try to imagine how such things would impact a specific person who was living during that time.

For example, a major change going on during the Renaissance was a move toward humanism and away from simply relying on the authority of the Church.  One way this was shown was through changes in art.  So maybe you could have an entry in which you talk about having gone to see some famous piece of art that was created during this time.  You could talk about your reactions to it.  Maybe you could say that it was really realistic and centered on humans rather than God.  Then you could talk about wondering if that is the right way for art to be.

So, just look for major trends in the Renaissance and try to imagine how a specific person would have experienced them.
