slave away

slave away (at something) — work very hard

Almost every graduate student in Cambridge must know Ms Laurie Friday — at least her signature on your admission letter. For the first time, I had a chance to meet her in at a party (she is really tall). Quite interestingly, every student who wanted to talk to her had almost the same opening line, “I still remember your signature on my letter!” To one student, Ms Laurie replied, “When you slave away to get your degree, I think at least you deserve a signature from me.”

    You’re getting better. The only correction I’d make is “at a party”.

    Thanks for the correction.
