Hi MissRubyEnvironment,

I'm happy to read that you like this video. Sorry that you can't make text bold. The adults who work on this website are admin, so we can write bold in our comments. Unfortunately our members can't write in bold. 

I hope that you still enjoy commenting on the site!


Best wishes,
