Struggling with this whole work life balance thing. Is it possible to have a semblance of a life/hobbies? If so, how? Most of my socializing is honestly in the microcosm of the firm (drink nights etc)

I think this is perfectly fine(in fact I think this is ideal behavior?) can someone educate me on why people are upset over this?
