I do get to see people from work away from work, and also get to be more of myself as I cannot really do so when working. Partly because of the fact that I have learned a strong work ethic from other jobs, and partly because being myself would go against the norm as dictated by the general population.
It is nice to hang out with a bunch of people in a lot more relaxed environment. Get to see some interesting things and hear some wacky conversations when people are drunk. 🙂
