    THis is what I get:
    CHromatin exists in a cell. It is histones and DNA plus other proteins that aren't 'together' or 'condensed' or 'attached' yet.
    When a cell wants to divide, in interphase, when it's preparing to divide but hasn't started yet, everything in chromatin comes together and forms chromosomes...

    Before interphase, you couldn't see chromosomes cuz obviously there was just chromatin. During interphase, you see chromosomes forming?
