There is no good or bad - it is simply, that there are rules, when which
file is read. The basic idea is, that .profile is read once, when you
login, while .bashrc is read, each time you open a bash ( it is similar
for other shells ).
When opening a terminal from the creator it is pretty clear, that you
don't login ( you have been before starting the creator ) and all the
settings from .profile should already be already available ( environment
variables are inherited to child processes ).
So to me it sound more, that you want to initialize your bash in this new
terminal and this would be what .bashrc is made for.
