I opened a big pencil sharpener (the ones you find on teachers desks) the graphite dust flew at me. I inhaled some, will i get graphite pneumoconiosis?

In brief: No risk, no worry

This might be a health risk if it happened 10 times a day for many years.
A single event will do no harm at all. Don't worry about it.
